What is RO-DBT?
Radically Open Dialectical Behavior Therapy (RO-DBT) is a therapy designed for those who may be a bit too “high strung” or “walk the line” a little too tightly. Rigid responses and holding back emotionally can be helpful at times, but it may be the root cause of depression, relationship issues, and more. RO-DBT teaches Radical Openness to create a "life worth sharing."
RO-DBT clinical research has shown that it may be helpful with clients diagnosed with chronic depression, treatment-resistant anxiety, Anorexia Nervosa, Avoidant Personality Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder, and Autistic Spectrum Disorders.
A “Life Worth Sharing?” - YES!!
What's a life without sharing it with a "tribe?" RO-DBT believes emotional-well being comes from:
Openness to feedback, (even when it is challenging!)
Flexibility in response to change
Communication of emotions: Because relationships require it
What can I expect from RO-DBT?
As our RO-DBT expert @psychesally (Sally Roesch) says, you can expect some fun AND some discomfort. But on the practical side, RO-DBT involves weekly individual therapy sessions, weekly RO-Skills class, and telephone coaching between sessions.
RO-DBT is time-limited, but there is the option to continue treatment at the end. It’s really up to you.
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.
Sally Roesch, M.Ed. completed RO-DBT intensive training in 2018.
