Training Information

TRAINING OVERVIEW

DBT is a comprehensive, modular-based intervention for complex and difficult-to-treat disorders.

The skills training component of DBT teaches behavioral skills designed to increase resilience, facilitate acceptance and change, and ultimately build a life experienced as worth living. DBT skills have been shown to be mediators of outcome across a range of clinical targets and populations.

This 3-day workshop will provide instruction and experiential practice in the DBT mindfulness skills and introduce updated and new applications of skills in the areas of emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness.

Participants will learn skills suitable for application as stand-alone skills or in conjunction with other therapy components.

Dr Marsha Linehan will be supported by Dr Kathryn Korslund during these three-day workshops.
