I www.caron.org Middle Path Skills Adolescent Specific skills These skills bridge the gap between acceptance and change These skills focus on 3 core areas: Dialectics Validation Behavior change 800.678.2332 I

www.caron.org Invalidating Environment An environment that pervasively negates or dismisses behavior independent of the actual validity of the behavior (often well-meaning)-family members, teachers, healthcare pro----------discontentment, irritability and hopelessness Characteristics: 1. Indiscriminately rejects communication of private experiences and selfinitiated behaviors-persons experiences are trivialized, not validated or punished 2. Intermittently reinforces escalation of emotional responses-removing demands after an incident-codependent 3. Over-simplifies ease of problem solving rather emphasizing the need to control emotional expressiveness-intolerant of displays of negative affectacting in or acting out 800.678.2332

I www.caron.org Consequences of Invalidation Environment does not teach individual to: - label private experience in a normative fashion (self-validate) - to effectively regulate emotions - to trust experiences as valid - accurately express emotions - communicate pain effectively - tolerate distress - solve difficult problems in living (resolve family conflict) - use shaping and other behavioral strategies

to effectively regulate own behavior 800.678.2332 I www.caron.org Invalidating Environment Environment does teach the individual to: - actively self invalidate - oscillate between emotional inhibition and extreme emotional displays - respond with high negative arousal to to failure - form unrealistic goals and expectations - hold perfectionistic standards

800.678.2332 I www.caron.org Key points in deciding which DBT skills to teach 1. Develop skills curriculum with the right focus and fit for the length of stay and target population 2. Skills taught should target the behaviors that typically lead to the inpatient/residential admission 3. Whatever skills are chosen, teach them twice 4. Staff should learn the skills and practice them themselves in order to be able to provide

5. Effective coaching 800.678.2332 I www.caron.org Steps to Planning a Skills Curriculum 1. Determine how much time you have to teach based on length of stay 2. Decide who you want to include in the skills training (teens only/family and teens/family only) 3. Multiple family groups/ parents taught separately 4. Decide which skills you want to teach 5. Decide which handouts and worksheets you want to use

800.678.2332 I www.caron.org Providing Feedback & Coaching Be behaviorally specific! Focus on client's performance, not motives Do not remove cue when client is over-sensitive to feedback Balance negative feedback with positive feedback Use shaping to encourage successive approximations Identify client's patterns of skill use over time 800.678.2332
