By popular demand, you can now learn “just the skills”.
You don’t have to be a Dialectical Behavior (DBT) therapist for your clients to benefit from the DBT skills. Learn 85 DBT skills in this recording.
This recording is intended for any therapist, from expert to novice, practicing any model of treatment – from psychodynamic, humanistic, cognitive behavioral, and more. You and your clients can benefit from learning 85 practical DBT skills.
Designed to enhance the client’s capabilities to change, dialectical behavior therapy teaches clients four major sets of life skills:
- Core Mindfulness Skills (what do you do and how do you become mindful)
- Distress Tolerance Skills (crisis survival skills)
- Emotion Regulation Skills (increasing emotions to feel that life is worth living)
- Interpersonal Effectiveness Skills (assertiveness training while maintaining relationships and self-respect)
DBT skills training is considered the easiest mode to implement in a variety of settings. These skills are now being taught to clients who suffer from self-harm, treatment-resistant depression, eating disorders, substance abuse and addiction – in addition to borderline personality disorder.
Watch Dr. Vaughn and learn how to pick and choose which skills are the most appropriate for your client population and how to teach them. The research now informs us that DBT skills alone work.

Medicine is the science and practice of establishing the diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, and prevention of disease.
Medicine encompasses a variety of health care practices evolved to maintain and restore health by the prevention and treatment of illness.
Contemporary medicine applies biomedical sciences, biomedical research, genetics, and medical technology to diagnose, treat, and prevent injury and disease,
typically through pharmaceuticals or surgery, but also through therapies as diverse as psychotherapy, external splints and traction, medical devices, biologics, and ionizing radiation, amongst others.
Medicine has been around for thousands of years, during most of which it was an art (an area of skill and knowledge) frequently having connections to the religious and
philosophical beliefs of local culture. For example, a medicine man would apply herbs and say prayers for healing, or an ancient philosopher and physician would apply bloodletting according to the theories of humorism.
In recent centuries, since the advent of modern science, most medicine has become a combination of art and science (both basic and applied, under the umbrella of medical science).
While stitching technique for sutures is an art learned through practice, the knowledge of what happens at the cellular and molecular level in the tissues being stitched arises through science.
