When trained and dedicated to see patterns through a social work lens, it is hard to “turn off” this perspective. However, taking on the role of social worker all the time, especially within our personal relationships, can lead to unhealthy dynamics and burnout. To what extent should we bring our social work education and skills to our personal lives and relationships, while considering ethical dynamics and healthy boundaries? How can we use the benefits of our education to enrich our personal lives in healthy ways?

This course will focus on the usage of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) with the Queer community in addressing mental health concerns. The Queer community experiences a large amount of discrimination, both on a micro and macro lens that leads to ongoing stressors. These stressors and environmental factors lead to a higher prevalence rate of mental illness within the Queer community. DBT, an evidence-based psychotherapy, has been shown to be beneficial for overall mental health, addressing self-injurious behaviors, emotional challenges, Major Depressive Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, and Generalized Anxiety Disorder. This course will address how to apply and use DBT with clients from the LGBTQIA2S+ community in an affirming and validating way.
This course will cover Minority Stress Theory, and Biosocial Theory as well as review and introduce skills from the 4 core modules of DBT, mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotional regulation and effective communication.
Registration for this course is closed. Visit the CE Course Catalog for more offerings.
