Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) was developed in the 1980’s and was published as a manualized evidence based treatment in 1993. This course is designed to teach clinicians how to conceptualize a case, how to understand treatment and how to apply DBT in individual therapy, skills training, milieu coaching and in consultation teams. The course is one contiguous training delivered in 3 separate 3-day training sessions. The curriculum emphasizes case-based learning (clinical examples) and experiential learning (role-plays, exercises, homework, and video) in order to teach clinicians to fully implement the DBT model
By the end of this three-day training participants will be able to:
- Discuss the research behind DBT,
- Describe how to structure DBT treatment,
- Explain how to implement Diary Cards and Chain Analysis
This introductory level course is intended for invited clinicians in the DBT provider agencies network
Participants must attend entire presentation and complete course evaluations as required in order to receive credits.
