Event Details

1 day workshop - 20th September 2019

This training is suitable for clinicians who have done some basic training in the DBT model and would like to put these skills into practice in a variety of settings. The workshop will focus on the practical application of the modes, principles, and theory of DBT through the use of case examples and practical exercises. Participants will have an improved capacity to apply DBT skills in groups and individual modes. This will include discussion of:

  • DBT Case Formulation
  • Dialectics in practice
  • Running DBT skills groups
  • Structuring DBT individual sessions
  • Adaptations of DBT in specialist client populations
