Implementation of DBT-Informed Therapy at a Rural University Training Clinic: A Case Study
Kerr, Patrick L.; Muehlenkamp, Jennifer J.; Larsen, Margo Adams
Cognitive and Behavioral Practice, v16 n1 p92-100 Feb 2009
University training clinics offer state-of-the-art treatment opportunities for clients, particularly for underserved and underinsured client populations. Little has been published regarding the implementation of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) in settings such as a university training clinic, which may face challenges in utilizing such a comprehensive treatment. This single-case study describes the application of a DBT-informed treatment with a female BPD client, highlighting how the modifications made can ease implementation in a rural university training clinic. Data collected from DBT diary cards document minimal time demands required for the use of between session-coaching, along with clinically meaningful changes in suicidality and misery ratings, and effective DBT skill use. A discussion of the unique components and contributions of this case to informing potential DBT modifications within university clinics are presented. (Contains 2 figures.)
