Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) helps individuals with complex, chronic, and utterly painful problems to find their way out of misery and build lives worth living. This Intensive Workshop equips therapists with the knowledge and behavioral skill sets needed to help clients on such a journey! Whether you are already a member or planning to join an established DBT Consultation team, or hoping to establish a new team and program, join instructor Charles Swenson, MD, and Kathryn Patrick, LCSW, for this dynamic; intensive workshop, and leave well-prepared for the work ahead! 

The workshop is conducted in two five-day sessions, Part 1 and Part 2, separated by five months. During Part 1, the instructors will teach theory, structuring, and practice of DBT in-depth, using lectures, videotapes, role-play demonstrations, participant exercises, and deliberate practices. During the interval between Parts 1 and 2, participants will complete practice assignments and a multiple-choice exam to consolidate their knowledge bases; to design, begin to implement, or strengthen their DBT programs; to conceptualize cases in DBT terms; and to engage in the use of DBT skills and treatment strategies. During the five-month interval, the instructors will interact with individuals and teams to help with program development, case questions, and assistance with the homework assignment as needed. During Part 2, teams and individuals will present their work and receive consultations on their programs and cases. At this point, the principles and details of adapting DBT to specific populations and treatment contexts will also be addressed. Part 2 will involve further teaching and demonstration of DBT strategies, with multiple opportunities for participants to practice the treatment with feedback.
