Description

Dialectical Behavior Therapy is a powerful, evidence-based treatment that allows clinicians to provide positive outcomes for clients of all ages struggling with stress, depression, trauma, suicidal and self-destructive behaviors and a variety of other clinical presentations.

This 3-day Certification Training will build the core competencies you need to bring DBT into your clinical practice and effectively use it with a wide range of client types. In just 3 days you’ll be given a roadmap to treat individuals using the skills and techniques from DBT so you can help your most challenging clients reach new levels of healing.

Even if you’ve attended other Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) trainings, this program will increase your competency and clinical sophistication with DBT when working with adults, youth, substance users and trauma survivors in a wide variety of settings.

Best of all, upon completion of this live training, you’ll be eligible to become Certified in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (C-DBT) through Evergreen Certifications. Certification lets colleagues, employers, and clients know that you’ve invested the extra time and effort necessary to understand the complexities of using DBT in counselling.

Comments

Andi B

"Dr Jacob made the material interesting and creating a warm, supportive learning community."

Karen R

"Excellent Presentation!"

Toi C

"Wish there was some time set aside to focus on the use of DBT skills with other populations-but I understand why it wasn't in this case. I don't work with adults often so while I learned a great deal I will have to work much harder to integrate those skills into my practice. "

CASSANDRA B

"Perhaps it was the nature of being thrown off due to changing our lecture from in person to online seminar, but things appeared very disjointed and there were many questions on the exam I do not feel were covered or touched on at all during the session."

Brenda F

"Excellent presentation especially as it was Dr. Jacob's first run through for a webinar. He was great with fielding questions from our group."

CRYSTAL W

"Dr. Jacob was amazing!"
