RO-DBT is tailored for clients who need an irrational or excessive amount of control. RO-DBT focuses on receptivity and openness, flexible control to adapt to changing environmental conditions, and intimacy and social-connectedness to form close, lasting bonds.
This therapy is most beneficial for clients with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Paranoia, Chronic Depression and Anxiety, and other areas where they need to learn to let go and be open to change.
If the client is experiencing difficulty expressing emotions, hyper-detailed or rule-governed behavior, distant style of relating, and high social comparison, they may benefit from an RO-DBT skills training course. At least one caregiver is required to participate weekly with adolescents in a skills training class.
