Dr. Harned currently works as a Research Scientist in the Department of Psychology at the University of Washington and is the Research Director of Dr. Marsha Linehan’s clinic. Since 2005, she has been Co-Investigator with Dr. Linehan on her NIMH- and NIDA-funded research as well as Principal Investigator on her own NIMH-funded research focused on the development and evaluation of a protocol to treat PTSD during DBT.  Dr. Harned also currently works as the Director of Research and Development for Behavioral Tech, LLC where she develops and evaluates methods of disseminating and implementing evidence-based treatments into clinical practice. Dr. Harned has published numerous journal articles and book chapters and she regularly lectures and leads trainings both nationally and internationally.

This 4-day workshop is designed to provide intensive training in how to integrate PTSD treatment into standard DBT. Participants will learn the DBT Prolonged Exposure (DBT PE) protocol for treating PTSD, one of the newest developments in DBT research and practice. This protocol can be added to standard DBT to allow for integrated treatment of PTSD, suicidal and self-injurious behavior, and other co-occurring problems. Participants will learn how to use DBT strategies to prepare high-risk and multi-problem clients for the DBT PE protocol as well as how to determine when clients are ready to begin formal PTSD treatment. The structure and procedures of the DBT PE protocol will be taught in a session-by-session format with extensive opportunities to watch video examples and practice delivering each of the primary treatment components. Particular attention will be paid to discussing strategies for overcoming common problems that arise during PTSD treatment with high-risk and multi-problem clients as well as how to tailor the treatment to address the complex characteristics of this client population.

  • Have attended a DBT Intensive or Foundational training (or equivalent)
