Recovery at the Junction of Mind, Body and Spirit explores the utility of DBT methods when providing substance use treatment to marginalized populations. DBT’s bio-psycho-social spiritual model is a perfect fit for substance use disorder treatment. The evidence-based-model supports the ambivalent substance abuse client to remain in treatment. Mindfulness training then provides a bridge to the often misunderstood or neglected spiritual needs of clients seeking recovery. Participants can expect to participate in a dynamic training from a passionate and skilled clinician and educator.

Learning Objectives

Participants will:

  • Explore specific skills related to Dialectical Behavioral Therapy including Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Emotion Regulation, Walking the Middle Path and Interpersonal Effectiveness.
  • Identify specific clinical strengths and challenges faced when adapting DBT for substance abuse treatment with stigmatized and marginalized people.
  • Explore clinical principles of adapting Evidence-Based Practices in culturally responsive ways.
  • Identify principles of Dialectical Behavior Therapy that compliment principles of 12-step support groups.

He is a dynamic clinician and speaker who uses an eclectic approach rooted in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
