Radically Open DBT (ro DBT)

RO DBT is an evidence based treatment for issues of emotional and responsive over-control. These issues tend to show up as perfectionistic and inflexible thinking, chronic issues with anxiety and depression that may also include obsessive compulsive symptoms, and difficulty expressing emotion and connecting with others. RO DBT is influenced by "regular" DBT but is distinct as its own evidence based approach developed by Thomas Lynch. Similar to DBT, RODBT incorporates skill building into the treatment so that clients struggling with over-control can learn how to respond more flexibly to create a "life worth sharing". Victoria Cane and Lindsay McClead are now Level 1 RODBT trained and will continue to offer RODBT skills to clients who meet criteria for over-control issues.
