Sunrise Residential Treatment Center relaunches its YouTube Channel, with new Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) skills videos. Nine of the full fifteen videos of the series are available, with the remaining 6 posting throughout this year. Some of the DBT skills in the first release include Interpersonal Effectiveness skills (“DEARMAN”) and Distress Tolerance skill (“TIPP").
The videos are for treatment programs or clinicans or familiies to practice and hone their skills. The videos are now being shared on other social media platforms like Facebook. “When users view the videos, they will see examples of skills that work for clients presently in residential treatment," said Sunrise’s Director of Operations, Noel Miller. Treatment programs around the United States are using these videos and sharing them, "Sunrise is constantly facilitating lasting change among students and families because we create as many experiences as possible for clients to practice all the DBT skills - on and off campus, with staff support," Miller said.
The announcement of the YouTube Channel comes as several initiatives at Sunrise have been occuring on campus, and around the country. Zen Master and Behavioral Tech trainer Randy Wolbert hosted a three day Mindfulness and Reality Acceptance training. Throughout the entire year, staff are trained on foundational principles of DBT skills and how to effectively coach students.
In conjunciton with Mindfulness training, Executive Director Brad Simpson, DSW and LCSW does 2-day Dialectical Behavioral Therapy Intensive training courses. In February, his training will take him to Louisville, Kentucky.
Sunrise RTC is evolving, training and leading the way as a integrated DBT residential treatment program.
