Remote Learning: Advanced Dialectical Behavioural Therapy Workshop

Posted on 15 Nov 2022

Date: 25 November and 02 December 2022

Times: 09.30 - 16.30 each day

DBT was founded in 1993 by Marsha Linehan, initially known as CBT for Borderline disorder.  DBT is now used for treating many disorders such as Borderline, Bipolar, and other Personality Disorders.  It has been proven useful for any level of suicidal behaviour, self-harming, or other self-destructive behaviour.  DBT consists of a series of skills and techniques for working with personality disorders and other areas.  Many people want to familiarise themselves with these skills without necessarily becoming a DBT therapist exclusively.  The Advanced DBT course delivered by subject expert Hilde Davy, focuses on how to teach clients the group skills, how to develop further on these skills in one to one sessions and how to help clients with any form of self-destructive behaviour.

Suitable for:

  • Professionals who see clients in one to one sessions and wish to add DBT techniques to their set of skills or want to use full DBT with their clients where applicable.
  • People or teams working in inpatient or community settings.
  • Mental health/psychiatric nurses, social workers, occupational therapists, clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, probation officers, people working in HR or Occupational Health departments.
  • Carers for people with mental health issues.

Note: Participants are required to provide evidence of having completed an introductory course in DBT by The Learning Curve Institute or equivalent in order to join this workshop
