British Isles DBT Trainingprides itself on delivering a high standard of training that is both informative and clinically relevant.  To ensure the highest standards all of our carefully selected trainers have received extensive supervision in DBT and have demonstrated adherence and competence in the delivery of the treatment.  In addition each trainer has been monitored and closely supervised by a Senior DBT Consultant to ensure their competence in training others in the treatment.   All trainers have received advanced training in the assessment of adherence in DBT by senior staff at BRTC.
