Dialectical Behavior Therapy for Adolescents and Young Adults

Click here to register.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an evidence based treatment for disorders of emotion dysregulation and has a strong evidence base for effectiveness with borderline personality disorder, suicidal and self harming adolescents, disordered eating, substance abuse, trauma and other mental health conditions. There is a shortage of trained DBT therapists in the metropolitan DC area and the demand for this treatment far outstrips the availability of the service. The stakes are high when treating high-risk individuals and providing adherent, comprehensive DBT as it was researched and found effective is critical. This training will provide participants with information on all elements of DBT and can be used towards certification. The training will include lecture, discussion, role-play, demonstrations and video to teach the material.
