This web-based session will introduce some of the essential features of DBT. We will highlight some of its similarities and differences from some other therapy approaches. It is designed for those with no previous experience of DBT who want to get acquainted with this therapy. Participants are not expected to have any previous experience of DBT and are invited to submit questions for discussion. By the end of this meeting participants will be able to decide if they want to learn more about DBT and receive some suggestions about how to do so.
This training has previously been offered by DBTNZ.
About our Web Series events:
This two-hour online Zoom group seminar is part of an online series designed to support practitioners in their DBT practice and professional development. A single DBT trainer will present an area of DBT study and progress its application to your context. Events may involve activities, discussion and Q+A for participants. There will be a maximum of 20 participants for each event. You will need a suitable device with a webcam and a reliable internet connection capable of streaming 'youtube' style video. When registered, we will send more information about the process of joining and participating in the Zoom meeting.
Note: if this training is sold out then you will be able to join a waitlist. If we repeat this training then those on the waiting list will be the first to be offered a place for the new training.
