The teaching material and practice regarding RO were really impactful – forget about my patients – I’m learning so much about myself, my world and my own style that the Transatlantic trip was worthwhile for this alone!
Natasha, NHS Therapist and DBT specialist
I have found it to be very user-friendly. The patients themselves have said that they have found it very impactful… For me, I have found that it’s been very helpful to me to provide the therapy but also for my own personal life. RO DBT focuses in on social functioning and getting better relationships. Very few other therapeutic techniques teach patients actual skills — how to use their own body to help to them interact differently with and influence their environment. People pick the skills up fairly quickly.
Amy Gaglia, NHS Therapist and DBT specialist
In the practice I work at our RO program has grown pretty quickly, which has been super cool to see! We started out as a practice mainly doing standard DBT, and since we found RO we’ve realized how many of our clients are OC and need RO instead. The shift from DBT to RO for a lot of our population has been neat to witness – clients able to do work in areas needed, and our clinicians not trained in RO being supportive of us and interested in learning more.
