What is RO-DBT?

Radically Open Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (RO-DBT) is a relatively new evidencebased treatment for patients with emotional over-control. Excessive self-control is associated with social isolation and poor interpersonal relations and it contributes to conditions like anorexia nervosa, obsessive-compulsive personality disorder, chronic depression and Autism Spectrum.

Assessment Process

Prior to the classes, a series of two, 1.5hr individual zoom or face to face sessions are required prior to the commencement of our online group skills classes. The assessment process is $275. These two sessions are assessments to determine suitability for the program. In particular, it will examine a person’s tendency to be over-controlled vs under-controlled.
