    Radically Open-Dialectical Behavior Therapy (RO-DBT) is a transdiagnostic treatment designed to address a spectrum of difficult-to-treat disorders sharing similar phenotypic and genotypic features associated with maladaptive over-control—such as anorexia nervosa, chronic depression, and obsessive compulsive personality disorder.

    Over-control has been linked to social isolation, aloof and distant relationships, cognitive rigidity, highly detailed focused processing, risk aversion, strong needs for structure, inhibited emotional expression, and hyper-perfectionism.

    While resting on the dialectical underpinnings of standard DBT, the therapeutic strategies, core skills, and theoretical perspectives in RO-DBT often substantially differ. For example, RO-DBT contends that emotional loneliness secondary to low openness and social-signaling deficits represents the core problem of over-control, not emotion dysregulation.

    RO-DBT also significantly differs from other treatment approaches, most notably by linking the communicative functions of emotional expression to the formation of close social bonds and via skills targeting social-signaling and changing neurophysiological arousal. 

    At the conclusion of this live presentation, participants should be able to:

      1. Explain a new bio-social theory for OC
      2. Describe the RO-DBT treatment structure
      3. Describe new RO-DBT treatment strategies designed to enhance willingness for self-inquiry and flexible responding.
      4. Describe the RO-DBT treatment hierarchy
      5. Describe a novel treatment mechanism positing open expression = trust = social connectedness
      6. List examples of strategies designed to improve pro-social cooperative signaling via activation of the parasympathetic nervous system’s social-safety system

        Trauma – particularly in the form of childhood maltreatment in the context of attachment relationships – is perhaps the most consistently implicated predictor of mental health disorder. This talk will consider what it is about trauma that makes it such a disruptive experience and, often, so complex to treat. It will be argued that there are three, related processes at work. The first is the impact of traumatic experiences on the attachment system as a basic biobehavioral system that plays a key role in the regulation of distress.  Second is the effect of such experiences on subsequent problems in mentalizing. The third potential impact of trauma on social learning and the emergence of epistemic mistrust, that is, the closing off of the mind to the possibility of accessing other people’s minds as safe and reliable sources of knowledge about how to navigate the social environment. The presentation will explore aspects of therapies that have been shown in outcomes studies to be effective in helping individuals struggling with the long term effects of adversity.

        At the conclusion of this live presentation, participants should be able to:

        • Attendees will be able to identify the link between trauma and the emergence of the non-mentalizing modes.
        • Attendees will be able to interpret the manifestations of post-trauma phenomenology and behavior in terms of the impact of trauma on self-structure.
        • Attendees will recognize the relevance of social referencing to the framing of a frightening and otherwise overwhelming experience.
        • Attendees will be able to pinpoint components of a range of psychosocial clinical interventions which lead to the reduction of post-traumatic effects of adversity.
