Join Debbie for another engaging discussion with Hope Arnold, senior clinician and trainer in Radically Open Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (RO DBT), for evidence-based strategies on how to work with “over controlling” biology in the service of loosening up a bit, more fulfilling relationships, and gaining the capacity to just chill!
