INTENSIVE DBT TRAINING

Dialectical Behavior Therapy Post Masters Training Fellowship

June 2020 - May 2022

CDBTA’s fellowship program combines intensive training, mentorship, peer consultation and hands-on clinical work. The program is designed to enhance clinical competencies in DBT treatment and prepares clinicians for national certification. CDBTA fellows learn from specialists in the field by participating in DBT consultation team, mentorship discussions, learning activities and individual supervision. Fellows apply their learning by co- facilitating DBT Skills Training Groups and providing therapy to a small number of clients.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy Foundational Training™

This comprehensive training involves rigorous preparation, training, and homework. Just as DBT requires clients to make a full commitment to treatment and to attend all sessions, DBT training requires participants to attend the entire training, do their best to learn the material, and participate in a willing, committed manner.
