Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) Seminar
Mental Health Professionals, join KYC’s Clinical Training Committee for a three-day virtual seminar on Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).
Dr. Lane Pederson will lead three days of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) training for mental health professionals. The entirety of the training will be grounded in evidence-based practices, a focus on clinical outcomes, and an emphasis on therapeutic factors. Therapists who attend this training will learn DBT philosophies, skills, and interventions. Consultation specific to the implementation of DBT will also be provided during the course of the training. Follow-up consultation is available on a per hour basis.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) has evolved from the go-to treatment for borderline personality disorder to one of the most recognized and sought after therapies for a variety of difficult to treat client problems. With an expanding evidence base, DBT skills and strategies are must-have for all types of therapists.
This training covers DBT from theory to application with up-to-date research, accessible teaching, video examples, and experiential exercises that emphasize evidence-based practices and therapeutic factors. Therapists of all levels will learn DBT essentials to integrate into their own practice, to confidently practice from a DBT orientation, and to continue their own personal development as a DBT therapist. Additionally, therapists will learn how to apply DBT in different treatment settings with diverse populations.
