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 2 separate 5-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
