However, excessive self-control has been linked to social isolation, aloof interpersonal functioning, meladaptive perfectionism, constricted emotional expressions, and difficult-to-treat mental health problems, including refractory depression. The aim of this webinar is to introduce clinicians to the theoretical foundations of new skills underlying RO DBT for disorders of overcontrol.

An overview of principles of cultural humility will be provided. Applied strategies and examples will be shared including specific tools and resources. Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions and discuss.
