Course Description

DBT Intensive Training is a comprehensive team-based programme of study designed to provide teams with the knowledge and skills necessary to provide DBT. It focuses on both the establishment of comprehensive DBT programmes and the clinical skills necessary to provide the treatment to persons with complex mental health problems. Intensive training in DBT includes 4 hours of content specific to risk assessment, management, and treatment of suicidal behaviours.

The programme is divided into two parts that are designed to guide teams to accomplish four phases of DBT programme implementation; Part I: “Preparation & Knowledge Acquisition” and Part II: “Implementation, Practice Improvement & Sustainability”.

In Part I, lectures, demonstrations of treatment, and small group exercises are used to teach DBT theory and strategies in-depth. Upon conclusion of Part I, participants consolidate and apply what they have learned with the help of practice assignments that are intended to guide the implementation process.

In the interim, teams design and begin to implement their own DBT programmes.

In Part II, each team presents their work and receives expert consultation on specific cases and on their programme, including protocols for specific treatment problems and adaptations of DBT.

As a result of this training participants will be able to provide DBT.


The Team must contain at least one person with an advanced degree in Psychology (Forensic, Clinical or Counselling), and ideally one person with advanced psychotherapy training, (either as part of a university degree or equivalent accreditation). All applicants require a core professional qualification in mental health (e.g. nursing, psychiatry, psychology, social work).
