LET US KNOW!

WE WOULD LIKE TO KNOW MORE ABOUT YOU AND YOUR TEAM, SO WE CAN BE PREPARED TO PROVIDE THE BEST INTENSIVE TRAINING POSSIBLE.


COURSE DESCRIPTION

The innovative 10-day DBT Comprehensive Implementation & Training Initiative (DBT CITI) is designed for practitioners and programs seeking an immersive experience in DBT – where the primary goal is to build a strong and adherent DBT program, outstanding DBT clinical competence, and a highly effective DBT consultation team.

Our immersive approach applies the best of training and implementation processes and methods developed by Drs. Marsha Linehan, Kelly Koerner, Linda Dimeff and their colleagues at the University of Washington, BTECH, & BTECH Research over the past two decades. Our eyes will be squarely set on ensuring that trainees and programs will be well-prepared for Linehan’s DBT Certification and Accreditation.

Elements of the DBT Comprehensive Implementation & Training Initiative

• Part I: Content Acquisition & Drafting a Provisional DBT Program Plan.
June 20th through 24th

This five-day onsite training will provide an immersive experience into all elements of DBT’s theoretical, structural, and clinical content, including DBT skills. Like the early days of Linehan’s DBT Intensives™, we will incorporate evening sessions devoted to learning DBT skills and how to run DBT skills training groups. Instruction will include: didactic presentations, experiential exercises, review and discussion of video and audio tapes, and small-group practice exercises. We will apply an active learning method in our overall approach that includes: learn it (learn fundamental content elements), see it (watch the clinical strategy modeled), and do it (practice applying learned/observed strategy). To ensure that teams are able to return to home with clear directions about how to build a DBT program in their unique setting, Dr. Dimeff will meet individually with each DBT team during Part I.

• Between Parts I & II: Strengthening Clinical Capability and Building a DBT Program.

At the conclusion of Part I, detailed instructions for practicing DBT and building a DBT program will be provided along with a DBT exam intended to help individuals prepare for the DBT Certification tests and to further strengthen their mastery of concepts. Assignments completed during this interim period will be presented at Part II.

• Part II: Strengthening Core Competencies and Refining Program Direction.
Dates TBA

The intent of Part II is to refine and receive feedback on DBT clinical skills and to ensure that each DBT program is headed in a direction of building a DBT program to fidelity. Specifically, each team will present a clinical DBT case, a clinical sample, and their DBT program. We will highlight those elements that are “on-model” and will work with the team on those elements that are “off-model.” We will drill deeper on concepts and strategies that require further refinement and practice.
