South Island training?

  • We are interested in running more training in the South Island and would like to gauge interest in us providing training in Christchurch in the second half of 2019. This would most likely be the September 'Introduction to DBT' or the November 'Skill Essentials training'. If you have an interest in a Christchurch event please contact us and let us know.

On-site DBT training for your organization

  • Sending a small number of staff to a scheduled training is usually a more economical option. However, if you have a large number of staff needing training and/or are looking towards a large implementation of DBT then it may be more effective and economical to bring us to you. We can provide on-site training to your organization and work with you to implement DBT in your context. Contact us to discuss your needs.
