Radically Open Dialectical Behavior Therapy (RO DBT), is an empirically based therapy, supported by more than 20 years of research, that effectively treats disorders characterized by excessive self-control, referred to as overcontrol. The counterintuitive idea behind RO DBT is that it is possible to have too much self-control. Dietitians will learn what an overcontrolled temperament is and how it applies to eating disorders, as well as techniques to treat those with it more effectively.
