2021 events

With the ongoing uncertainties of covid, we have decided to focus on online training until there is greater certainty about in-person events. Hence it is unlikely that we will offer in-person training until sometime near the end of 2021.

Accordingly, we have adapted our training methods so we can offer our standard trainings online. These will include online versions of our 2-day Introduction to DBT, DBT skills essentials and our 5-day Foundational training online.  You can read about these standard trainings here.

Our 2020 webinar events were well received and may be extended in 2021. Let us know if you and your team have topics of interest.

On-site DBT training for your organization

Sending a small number of staff to a scheduled training is usually a more economical option. However, for larger staff numbers and/or larger implementations of DBT 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.
