Radically Open-DBT

"We don't see things as they are; we see them as we are." - Anais Nin

What is RO-DBT?

RO-DBT has been shown to be effective when working with clients who exhibit rigid responses and emotional inhibition thought to underlie many treatment-resistant conditions. RO-DBT utilizes the foundation of Dialectical Behavior Therapy and incorporates Radical Openness to create a "life worth sharing." RO-DBT has been proven effective with clients who diagnosed with chronic depression, treatment-resistant anxiety, Anorexia Nervosa, Avoidant Personality Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder, and Autistic Spectrum Disorders. 

Life Worth Sharing? - YES!!

What's a life without sharing it with a "tribe?" RO-DBT believes the following components create emotional-well being:

Openness to feedback, even when it is challenging.
Flexibility in responses to changing environmental demands.
Communication of emotions, with a recognition that expressing emotion is crucial to forming interpersonal bonds.

What can I expect from RO-DBT?

RO-DBT consists of weekly individual therapy sessions, weekly RO-Skills class, and intersession telephone coaching.

RO-DBT is designed to be time-limited with the option of continuing treatment after completion of the program. RO-DBT therapists are encouraged to be "ambassadors" to promote novel behavior, self-inquiry, social connection, and adaptive signaling of emotional expression. 

RO-DBT is the latest adaptation to DBT and has been developed over the past 20 years in the UK, Europe, and North America. PSYCHē is proud to be one of the first practices in Tennessee to offer all components of RO-DBT.
