Course Description:

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) has evolved from the go-to treatment for borderline personality disorder to one of the most recognized and sought after therapies for a variety of difficult to treat client problems. The increasing pressure to adopt treatments that work makes DBT skills and strategies a must-have for all types of therapists.

For those who feel that pressure but fear becoming a “manual manic”, relax. Dr. Lane Pederson teaches how to follow the manual yet make thoughtful customizations consistent with evidence-based practices and always grounded in the therapeutic alliance. Covering DBT from theory to clinical application, including the use of diary cards, behavioral analysis, contingency management, and multi-layered validation, this certificate course welcomes those implementing DBT in standard and adapted ways as well as those wishing to simply add DBT skills and techniques to their eclectic or integrative style.

If you have felt limited or stuck with your therapy skills or ready to give up on certain clients, this certificate course will breathe new life into your work. You will leave ready to use the essentials of DBT listed above as well as skills from the Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Emotion Regulation, and Interpersonal Effectiveness Modules with your clients, enjoying new confidence in and effectiveness with your clinical skill set.
