We offer two types of consultation (scroll down for more information on each of them):
Type one of consultation
Expert-Led Team Consult
The aim of the expert-led Radically Open Dialectical Behavior Therapy (RO DBT) consult team is to support RO DBT therapists with the collective wisdom of their colleagues and an expert in learning and providing RO DBT. Effective delivery of RO DBT requires therapists to practice radical openness skills themselves, as it is experiential, not a therapy that can be learned solely intellectually. The use of outside consultation (such as a team) is one of the most effective ways to make this a reality. A well-functioning consultation team, with open minds, provides not only support but also corrective feedback.
Type two of consultation
Meet the Expert
The aim of this 1-hour meeting is for clinicians to ask questions about the teaching materials. This meeting is not meant to discuss patient-related or case-specific issues. It is possible to attend the meeting as a group if you all have the same topic you’d like to discuss, or if you are working in a team and would like the collective benefit of getting a better understanding of the materials. The expert might practice protocols with you using role-plays.
I would definitely give the expert-led consult team 5 stars. My tribe made this an informative, thought provoking and a very enjoyable experience. I felt so much support from my team. It was refreshing to be vulnerable without being self-conscious about others’ reactions or have worries about being judged. Karyn was so knowledgeable and very available for any questions we had in between our consultation days. We were so lucky to have Karyn as our leader. I told her she was the wind beneath my wings. Being part of a team, I can say it definitely accelerated my comfort level, and confidence, to provide RO to my OC clients. Viewing tapes of our clients was invaluable and gave me much more insight into social signaling and how I need to navigate my sessions as a clinician. So, I can describe my experience in a word borrowed from one of the teens I see- Superfrickenfantastic! Thanks Team!!!

Team Consult: Insightful, effective, fun
My experience was great. Our whole team stepped up our game noticeably over the six sessions. It was very helpful. Karyn modeled the RO approach while attending to all our questions and we came away from it with a noticeable improvement in our skill-levels and confident we will do this again in the future. If anyone is considering doing this, I feel that expert-lead consultation is the single most helpful way to learn and integrate RO DBT.

Insightful, challenging, rewarding
It was a pleasure and honor to have the opportunity to interact with Karyn Hall during expert-led consult. This training allows anyone with hands on experience in RO-DBT to take their knowledge, experience and understanding to the next level. Karyn provided honest and straightforward feedback to participants that was timely and beneficial to both the individual clinician and to other participants virtually attending the training sessions. During the Expert-led team consult, Karyn highlighted and recognized individual strengths while at the same time provided support and insight to areas where clinicians may require more development. My experience with both Karyn and the Expert-Lead RO-DBT Team Consultation has been invaluable for both my clinical training and professional growth.
