Radically Open DBT
What is Radically Open Dialiectical Behavior Therapy?
RO DBT is a powerful, transdiagonstic treatment for conditions of overcontrol (e.g., perfectionism, anxiety, struggles with food and body image, overwork, and maladaptive overachieving). This skill-based intervention was developed by Dr. Thomas Lynch (2018), and after decades of rigorous study, has been found to have strong research support in treating conditions that often have not responded to typical talk therapy approaches.
How can RO DBT help with over-functioning, perfectionism, treatment-resistant anxiety and burnout?
RO DBT interventions are designed to increase psychological flexibility, build deep connections, and enhance resilience. This traditionally includes individual therapy, a weekly class, consultation, and between session skills coaching. These components allow for more lasting, meaningful change for symptoms that persisted for years. You can find a list of trained RO DBT providers here. At Greenwell Psychology, we offer both individual therapy and several RO DBT Classes available online. You do not need to be in individual therapy with Dr. Greenwell to attend her skills classes, but we do recommend that you have a current therapist.
