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 at least until the beginning of 2022.

We are finalizing details of the following events:

Two-day training events:

  • Introduction to DBT – planned for September 2021
  • Skills training in DBT – planned for November 2021
You can read about these standard trainings here.

Webinars (each will be 90 to 120 minutes)

  • Adapting DBT approaches to private practice settings
  • Treating eating disorders within standard comprehensive DBT
  • Postvention

We plan to have the dates and details finalized shortly and then will open these events for registrations.

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.
