PROGRAM DETAILS


Dialectical Behavior Therapy has been well-documented in studies at universities and research centers as being a highly effective treatment for Borderline Personality Disorder. However, clinicians are often surprised to find that translating DBT for use in frontline clinical settings such as mental health centers, residential programs, hospitals, clinics, schools and private practice can be surprisingly challenging.


Because most clinicians do not have the time, resources or data to determine how DBT needs to be adjusted in order to work well in their particular setting, this seminar will present the most effective ways of adopting, adapting and tailoring DBT to the realities of frontline clinical work. This seminar is appropriate to all levels of social service professionals, as clinicians who are new to DBT will learn its approach and methods, and clinicians familiar with DBT will learn innovative ways to alter DBT for maximum effectiveness in their setting and for their patient population.
