Originally developed for the treatment of Borderline Personality Disorder in an outpatient setting, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) has now shown effectiveness in 30 Random Controlled Trails (RCT’s) across additional contexts, for increased populations, and at substantial cost savings to communities over “treatment as usual”. Research and clinical success has resulted in an explosion in the popularity of this treatment. Informal adaptations to the DBT model have also proliferated as agencies with limited funding for formal training and staffing respond to competing demands to provide high quality treatment and to serve a large population. Concerns about the effectiveness of these simplified adaptations has become an important issue to consumer groups and to those who fund this service. 

This introductory workshop will provide an overview of the DBT model, including information on how to begin a DBT consultation team. Developing and maintaining adherent treatment will be discussed and time made available for consultation on program start up. In addition, new developments in accreditation of programs and certification of providers will be introduced, with discussion of implications for treatment.


At the end of this training the mindful participant will be able to:     

1. Identify general inclusionary criteria for this treatment as a basis for making appropriate referral

2. Have the resources necessary to evaluate if a program is “comprehensive"

3. Demonstrate a basic understanding of each component of the DBT model
