Overcontrol and Introduction to RO-DBT

Presented by Hope Arnold, LCSW, MA

Radically Open Dialectical Behavior Therapy (RO-DBT) is a treatment for patients who suffer from emotional and behavioral over-control. Some clients lack emotional control and need interventions designed to enhance emotional and behavioral control; others, for whom RO-DBT is designed, require interventions designed to relax rigid or inflexible control. RO-DBT has been researched over the past 25 years for patients with chronic depression or anorexia nervosa. Research results suggest that it is effective in these, and other, hard-to-treat groups such as Autism Spectrum Disorders and Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder.
