DBT Certification Details:
The DBT Skills Training program is an excellent means of training new team members and milieu/line staff, and strengthening existing team members' skills. For those that are interested in getting DBT Certified, there is a requirement to obtain a minimum of 40 didactic training hours specific to DBT. The DBT skills program is 20 hours and we offer another program called Forensic Applications of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) which is another 10 hours towards certification.

This self-paced online training program focuses on Skills Training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a comprehensive cognitive behavioral treatment that is increasingly being used in a variety of health settings. Comprehensive DBT has been found to have great practical utility for the reduction of violence and self-harm. DBT Skills are an essential component of comprehensive DBT and some evidence suggests that skills alone, with case management may efficacious for less acute individuals as well. The primary focus of this course will be the content and delivery of the skills component of DBT with emphasis on relevant adaptations for forensic clients (e.g., substance abuse, skills for reducing violence & obsessional thinking).
Throughout the course, didactic presentation with relevant case examples will alternate with participant practice of DBT skills. This course will contain discussion of strategies for successful implementation and interactive discussion with participants about potential application of DBT Skills to their settings/populations. Participants will learn how to apply and teach the effective DBT skills of Core Mindfulness, Interpersonal Effectiveness, Distress Tolerance, and Emotion Regulation. Participants will also learn how to apply and teach the effective DBT skills of Core Mindfulness, Interpersonal Effectiveness, Distress Tolerance, and Emotion Regulation.
The fee for this training program is $500 and includes all materials and worksheets. In addition, case studies and other case-relevant materials are provided for training purposes. Participants are expected to commit approximately 20 hours to completing this training program. Quiz questions are presented throughout the training program; a grade of 70% is required to advance in the training program. Once the program is completed, participants are able to download or print the certificate of completion upon submission of the course evaluation.
This course is relevant for psychologists, psychiatrists, case managers, social workers, nurses, marriage & family therapists, alcohol & drug abuse counsellors and other mental health professionals who work with individuals for whom comprehensive cognitive behavioral treatments are relevant. This course is for beginner, intermediate, and advanced level clinicians.
