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. Send us some info so we can discuss your needs.
