Practice-Based Intensive Dialectical Behavioural Therapy Training – DVD


This workshop will teach you DBT from theory to application with up-to-date, accessible teaching and experiential exercises that emphasise evidence-based practice and therapeutic factors rather than rote adherence to a manual. Practitioners of all levels will learn DBT essentials to integrate into their own practice, to confidently practice from a DBT orientation, and to continue their own personal development as a DBT therapist.

Presenter: Lane Pederson, PhD
