37 Dialectical Behavior Therapy for At-Risk Adolescents Summary In this chapter, we introduced you to the foundations of DBT treatment and to the theoretical dialectic of acceptance and change that will guide your work when you provide DBT treatment. We have provided several specific ways to practice both acceptance (validation) and change when you work with adolescents. Finally, we have presented assumptions that will guide your work as a DBT practitioner. 38 PA R T 2 DBT Treatment for Adolescents: An Overview of DBT Modalities CHAPTER 3 Individual Therapy Individual DBT therapy begins with the understanding that a practitioner can be most caring and effective by helping a client change in ways that bring her closer to her own goals for life.

These comments add to their sense of confusion, guilt, and shame. Having an explanation for why they might feel the way they do begins to bring them some relief. The practitioner points out that intense emotions are not always a problem and are certainly not the fault of the adolescent. The practitioner explains that sometimes these emotions (and 20 DBT Orientation passions) can be extremely pleasurable and highly effective in getting the adolescent what he wants, may lead to creative work, and are probably reinforced by others.

Each treatment-­interfering behavior is addressed in treatment until it is no longer problematic (Linehan, 1993a). Practitioners will practice their own mindful awareness so that they can recognize behaviors that interfere with their ability to provide the most effective treatment for their clients (Swenson, 2012). Practitioner Treatment-­Interfering Behaviors DBT also targets treatment-­interfering behaviors on the part of the practitioner. If a practitioner is late to a session or does not return an e-­mail or call, the practitioner may decide to do a repair or make an apology as a way to recognize that this behavior may have negatively impacted the treatment, and to model behavior for the adolescent.
