Introduction

Self-control, the ability to inhibit competing urges, impulses, or behaviours is highly valued by most societies. However, excessive self-control has been linked to social isolation, aloof interpersonal functioning, maladaptive perfectionism, constricted emotional expressions, and difficult-to-treat mental health problems, such as refractory depression and anxiety, obsessive compulsive personality disorder, and anorexia nervosa.  The aim of this workshop is to introduce clinicians to the theoretical foundations and new skills underlying Radically Open-Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (RO-DBT) for disorders of overcontrol. 

The biosocial theory for overcontrol posits that heightened threat sensitivity and diminished reward sensitivity transact with early family experiences emphasizing “mistakes as intolerable” and “self-control as imperative” to result in an overcontrolled coping style that limits opportunities to learn new skills and exploit positive social reinforcers. A novel thesis linking the communicative functions of emotional expression to the formation of close social bonds will be introduced, as well as new skills emphasizing receptivity, self-enquiry and flexible responding. Using slides, handouts, video clips, and role-plays, new assessment and treatment interventions will be taught including 1) diagnosing over-control 2) targeting social signaling as the key mechanism of change 3) teaching therapists how to recognize and treat “disguised demands” - common indirect OC social signaling behaviors. 

Who Should Attend

Psychologists, Social Workers, Counselors, Psychiatrists, Nurse Practitioners, and other mental health clinicians, including nurses, service coordinators, researchers, and others who are work with people with treatment refractory anxiety and depression, OCPD, Anorexia Nervosa, or who are interested in Radically Open Dialectical Behavior Therapy.

Learning Objectives

At the completion of this program, participants should be able to:

  1. Explain a new biosocial theory for Overcontrol (OC)
  2. Describe a novel treatment mechanism positing open expression = trust = social connectedness
  3. Describe new RO-DBT treatment strategies designed to enhance willingness for self-inquiry and flexible responding.
  4. Describe the four core deficits of Overcontrol
  5. Describe the RO-DBT treatment structure
  6. Describe the RO-DBT treatment hierarchy
  7. Explain the most common indirect social signalling styles in OC
