Join The Ohio State University College of Social Work for a free webinar focusing on RO-DBT, which is a new treatment that targets over-controlled behavior. It has been used to treat some of the rigid responses and emotional inhibition thought to underlie many treatment-resistant conditions. Who is the Treatment for? Patients who have a diagnosis of Chronic Depression, Treatment-Resistant Anxiety Disorders, Anorexia Nervosa, Avoidant, Paranoid and Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorders and Autistic Spectrum Disorders. What do these Disorders have in Common? Self-control (inhibiting acting on urges, impulses, and desires) is highly valued by most societies, and failures in self-control characterize many of the personal and social problems affecting modern civilization.
