About EDCO 291 Z04

Dialectical Behavior Therapy is unique in that it places equal emphasis on change and acceptance. This course provides an overview of the acceptance strategies that balance the change strategies in DBT practice. Research indicates that offering validation along with the push for change creates an environment where clients are more likely to cooperate and less likely to suffer distress associated with the idea of change. Dialectics work to resolve the seeming contradiction between aceptance and change through the ideas that (1) all things are interconnected, (2) change is constant and inevitable, and (3) opposites can be integrated to form a closer approximation of the truth. This course will expose students to: what constitutes validation and invalidation; the six levels of validation in DBT; how to implement these six levels of validation as interventions in therapeutic conversations; three dialectical dimensions (emotional vulnerability vs. self-invalidation, active passivity vs. apparent competence and unrelenting crisis vs. inhibited grief); and strategies for investigating and synthesizing the two poles of dialectical dilemmas.
