DBT Advanced Workshop

About this workshop

This advanced level workshop is designed for clinicians familiar with DBT and who are wanting to improve their outcomes and effectiveness in individual DBT. The workshop focusses on key areas of individual DBT including case formulation, targeting, structuring the session, and managing risk. Common pitfalls and problems therapists encounter in individual DBT will be highlighted and strategies to overcome them taught.

Attendance at this workshop assumes a good working knowledge of Dialectical Behaviour Therapy structure and principles as taught in the Introductory Workshop.

The training model involves completing a case formulation prior to the workshop with time to review and reflect on “what is missing”, as well as observation of individual DBT therapy sessions and opportunity to rate DBT adherence.
