Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)

Go Back


Sometimes a fresh approach to working with complex needs or challenging clients is needed. 

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) is a treatment that has been developed to help chronically suicidal individuals diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder. It has also been effective in treating a wide range of other disorders, such as substance dependence, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and eating disorders.

Our course will build on your experience and boost your confidence in making practical interventions. 

The course will cover:

  • What is DBT? Its origins, its evidence-base and its current applications
  • The challenges of working with people with Borderline Personality Disorders, and with Complex Needs, and how DBT can be applied to help with these
  • Setting up a ‘learning environment’ for clients, and exploring what a behavioural analysis is
  • The techniques of DBT, e.g: ‘mindfulness’, ‘stress tolerance’, ‘emotional regulation’, ‘interpersonal effectiveness’. 
  • Specialist therapeutic support: how to refer to DBT specialists and support someone who is undergoing therapy

The course will explore the relevant issues through role-play, case studies and group discussion, as well as trainer input.
