What is Radically Open Dialectical Behavior Therapy?
Radically Open Dialectical Behavior Therapy is for clients experiencing difficulty with control, including excessive self-control or over control.
RODBT practitioners believe that control issues can manifest as depression, anxiety, Autism Spectrum Disorder, anorexia nervosa, and some personality disorders. The idea behind RODBT is that while some level of self-control can be functional, an excess can lead to dysfunction in relationships.
Your counselor will help you change your physiological responses when you demonstrate excessive control, such as in social situations. Recognizing the times when you are less open allows you to work on your relating skills.
In RODBT, openness, flexibility, and social connectedness work together as the core of what it means to be radically open.
Anyone who has relational struggles or problems with control can benefit.
