  • DBT-Prolonged Exposure - February 12th -15th , 2018 (Auckland). DBT-PE is an evidence based protocol for treating ‘stage 2’ and PTSD problems for BPD and related DBT clients.  It targets stage 1 and stage 2 problems within the first year of treatment and has demonstrated substantial further reductions in suicidal behaviour. We have secured dates with US based Behavioral Tech to bring Dr Melanie Harned (the developer of the DBT-PE protocol) for a four day DBT-PE training.  This training will assume a high level of level of previous DBT training.
