The psychological impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is significant and mental health systems are strained by high demand. Numerous factors associated with the pandemic are risks for the development of mental health problems in the population at-large; infection (or fear of infection), extended periods of social isolation, economic stressors, and disruption to one’s normal routine are all risk factors for subsequent problems. Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a comprehensive psychological treatment that was originally developed for borderline personality disorder but has been expanded to a variety of problems, many of which have been experienced by people during the pandemic. Dozens of randomized trials of DBT have been conducted including studies evaluating the efficacy of only the skills portion of the treatment. Results support the use of DBT skills to increase emotion regulation capabilities and decrease negative mental health outcomes such as depression and anxiety. In this webinar, Dr. Rizvi will review the DBT skills modules, the proposed mechanisms of change within DBT, and will highlight specific skills that may be especially useful during this period. In addition, skills that therapists can use themselves to manage stress and burnout will be reviewed.
