2 day workshop - Wednesday 21 and Thursday 22 June
This 2-day workshop will provide an overview of the theory and principles of dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) as well as the practical applications of treatment. Participants will discuss common clinical concerns, enhanced by demonstrations and case studies. Skills and strategies to achieve treatment progress will support participants to apply DBT to clinical practice. This workshop is suitable for all mental health clinicians new to DBT as well as those with prior experience. Supervision will also be offered following the training to support clinicians in applying the practices and principles into their daily work. Participants should attend both sessions.
