The Main 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, enhances empathy for the client, promotes therapist adherence to the treatment and helps prevent therapist burn out.
By participating on an expert-led RO Consultation Team, you learn how to have an effective team on your own. Part of the work on the team involves modeling openness, giving and receiving corrective feedback, practicing RO mindfulness as a team, practicing self-inquiry, practicing identifying social signaling targets and solidifying all RO DBT techniques and principles. With the inconspicuous nature of most overcontrolled (OC) related problems, it is rarely sufficient for therapists to simply verbally describe in consultation what they believe to be the clinical problem. Role plays and videotapes of actual individual sessions or skills classes will be part of the team experience.
Team consult package: Six Team Consult Meetings: A Senior RO Consult Leader leads a group of max. 10 learners and meets with them during a live webinar meeting (max. 2 hours per meeting). The aims of these meetings are similar to a regular team consult where issues regarding patients and treatment implementation are discussed.
Participants who sign up for the consult team will be given a participant packet. This packet will include information about what is expected of you before attending the consult team. The purpose of this packet is to help prepare you for participating on the team and provide a foundation for the team consultation experience.

Zoom is secure and HIPAA compliant, which means everything that is being said and shown will not be available to anyone other than the team or person attending the meeting. Zoom sessions may be recorded for training and quality assurance purposes. Sessions are never shared publicly with anyone who is not part of the RO training team, but they may be shown to the supervisory team. If you object to your sessions being recorded, please let your supervisor, case consultant, or expert leader know.
