I’m so grateful to have been able to do my RO-DBT training online! As a therapist that focuses on treating eating disorders and concurrent conditions, RO-DBT has been extremely helpful in treating my more restrictive, controlled clients – especially those with concurrent anxiety, depression and/or OCD. When things locked down over the COVID-19 pandemic, I was so concerned I would not be able to continue with my RO-DBT training. When I found out there was an online option available, I was SO relieved. The online trainings were really easy to do from home, brought to life the concepts from the texts, and help me better understand how to apply the protocols. The online format made the experience really accessible too – so I am able to start using the treatment ASAP, something that was really important to me. I was nervous that the online training just wouldn’t be the same as in-person options and, while I only did online training so I can’t compare, I am certainly not walking away feeling I have missed out on anything!
I definitely recommend the online trainings, they are an accessible way to get the content and really bring the learning down to it’s roots/basics without over-complicating things. I am so glad they exist!
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.
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!
