Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Intensive Training Course



Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an empirically validated approach for working with mental health, chemical dependency, and complex co-morbidity. Designed to empower clients to establish mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotional regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness, DBT assists clinicians in treating clients with emotional problems, suicidal, self-harm, and self-sabotaging urges and behaviours, and challenging interpersonal styles.

Watch this recording and receive a detailed understanding and foundation of the skills of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) as applied to clients with mental health and chemical dependency issues. Going beyond symptom management, these skills are designed to improve functioning to build satisfying lives.

This intensive training explores DBT’s theoretical basis, specific DBT interventions, and how to teach skills in individual and group settings. Familiarity with these skills and techniques along with experiential exercises will enhance your clinical skills and professional development.

Guided by the latest research and policy in evidence-based practices, this intensive training teaches the clinical process and content of DBT from theory to practice. Going beyond prescriptive applications, this recording shows you how to use essentials such as validation, dialectical strategies, communication styles, and the best ways of changing behaviours in order to effectively balance acceptance and change with your clients.

Complete with education on user-friendly diary cards and chain analysis protocols, you will gain increased DBT competency as well as many new tools including client worksheets to bring to your clinical practice.

"It was an excellent program! I'm motivated to continue learning more about this approach and I want to start using the skills and tools of DBT more often with my clients. It was a lot to cover in two short days. I wish we had had more time to dig a bit deeper into some of the skills and the tools. It was nice to be able to do this off site. There were a few glitches with the technology, but the techs were very responsive and solutions focused. "
