Case conceptualization: Weaving together a trauma-informed lens and DBT principles to increase intentionality in therapy w/ Jennifer Cobb, LCSW, DBTC

October 14 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Case conceptualization is fundamental to effective therapy, answering the question, “Why am I doing what I am doing?” This workshop draws from a person-centered, trauma-informed DBT perspective to equip participants with skills to create comprehensive roadmaps for therapy. Participants will learn how to create formal and less formal (on-the-fly) case conceptualizations that prioritize treatment hierarchies tailored to client’s unique needs. Jennifer will illustrate how a well-conceived plan heightens intentionality around client experiences and treatment strategies and targets, such as when and how to use behavioral contingencies and rewards, somatic exploration, and exposure decisions to reduce emotional avoidance during sessions. Jennifer will provide practical examples, and participants will practice engaging with case conceptualizations in small group exercises.
