Only 9 days: DBT individual therapy for the NON-DBT therapist

Are you joining us?

Since 2013 when we move our practice to Walnut Creek we have been offering DBT skills groups for adults and families as well as DBT services in general. Because of this particular service we have collaborated with different colleagues at different times. In this process, we have encountered many competent and dedicated clinicians that often said, “I want to help my client but I’m not sure I’m fully prepared to do DBT work.”Because of the feedback we received from our colleagues, we are excited to announce our upcoming workshop: “DBT-informed individual therapy for the NON-DBT therapist.” If you’re a clinician interested, you don’t need to know anything about DBT or behavioral-based interventions to participate in this workshop because we would share with you all the basics of how to conduct the DBT-individual therapy that will certainly increase your competency when working with these clients.Please see below the details of our upcoming workshop on april 25th. We offer 7 CE’s for  Psy.D’s, PhD’s, MFTs, LCSWs, LEP’s and LPCC’s. Because it’s our priority to offer a quality training we’ll only accept 14 participants.
The workshop will have a didactic component but primarily focuses on experiential exercises that will show participants “how to” deliver each one of these five interventions, with ample opportunities for practice and individual feedback. Please notice that we are using the words “How to” because we’ll show you how we do it and then invite you to practice these interventions with us.
