This two-day online workshop is an introduction to Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) intended for mental health professionals who wish to acquaint themselves with the treatment or who are considering further training in DBT. The training introduces change-based technology (behaviour therapy) with acceptance-based principles (validation), along with dialectical strategies that provide the balance of acceptance and change. It also highlights the frame of DBT and defines the modes and functions of comprehensive DBT. We introduce a core selection of skills from the 2015 Skills Training Manual (2nd Ed.). Methods of instruction include lecture, demonstration, and practice exercises to teach the principles and strategies of DBT.
This training has been developed by Dr Marsha Linehan and is delivered by our trainers in collaboration with Behavioral Tech and The Linehan Institute. It has previously been offered by us in New Zealand.
We are offering this training online via Zoom. This will allow us to provide the training without travel costs and also model how to effectively offer elements of the treatment remotely. We have experience in delivering DBT trainings and therapy sessions remotely, and are committed to making this an engaging, rich, and interactive experience.
Please note we do not record the training as it is an interactive web-based training (not a webinar) which may include health-related information. Participants must agree to the ‘no recording’ policy.
- This is a beginning to intermediate level training.
Dr Emily Cooney is a clinical psychologist who has worked in the US, the UK, and New Zealand with children and adults in a range of inpatient and outpatient settings, with a particular focus on DBT. She is a senior lecturer at Otago University and an assistant professor adjunct at the Yale School of Medicine, where she co-directed the DBT and DBT for substance use disorder teams within an Intensive Outpatient Program. Emily served as a research therapist on two trials of DBT under Dr Marsha Linehan, and was the principal investigator on two DBT feasibility trials in New Zealand. One examined DBT for self-harming adolescents, and the other trialed DBT skills training for men with anger-related problems. She provides training and consultation in DBT via Behavioral Tech as well as DBTNZ, and her current research focusses on whānau-oriented intervention and research for people experiencing family violence and suicidal thoughts and behaviour.

Shelly's roles focus on developing and implementing DBT initiatives within various settings, including DBT in schools, DBT skills training groups for adolescents, and DBT for co-morbid eating disorders.
She provides DBT and DBT-ED-specific training and consultation for DBTNZ and Behavioral Tech, both within NZ and internationally. She also provides specialist supervision and mentorship for DBT teams and trainees and consultation for eating disorder services. Shelly regularly presents at annual international eating disorder conferences and is the elected co-chair for the Suicide and DBT special interest group for the International Academy for Eating Disorders (AED).
