Course Description

The five-day DBT Upgrade Training is designed specifically for an individual or a small group of therapists who have completed preliminary training in DBT (i.e. Foundation or equivalent) and are looking to increase their training to Intensive level status. The course is also well suited to those who are looking to refresh their skills and knowledge to further promote adherence to the model in the workplace. It is not a substitute for Intensive Training but is meant to assist teams that have employed new staff or experienced staff turnover and also to assist individuals who partake in the training in creating a structured route toward advanced DBT Training and accreditation. This course is also suitable for those who may have received their initial training in DBT with another training provider This course will assume that all participants work in an active DBT Programme, participate in a consultation team, and work within a comprehensively trained team.

You will be asked to be prepared by:

  • Bringing a target hierarchy and chain and solution analysis from the same case
  • Provide a list of the functions and modes of the DBT Programme you are a member of
  • Come prepared to lead a mindfulness exercise if called upon to do so


All applicants require a core professional qualification in mental health (e.g. nursing, psychiatry, psychology, social work) and must have successfully completed Foundational training (or equivalent).
