Validation is a critical component of Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and a skill which practitioners will need to learn, practice, and fine tune in order to be truly effective. Dr. Ronda Oswalt Reitz talks with us about who benefits most by the use of validation. She also explains in detail the Six Levels of Validation as proposed by Dr. Marsha Linehan, the architect of Dialectical Behavior Therapy. Understanding and practicing these validation levels will help you as a clinician and the people you serve to engage each other in an open, trusting, therapeutic environment.
