Learning Curve Institute: Remote Learning – Advanced Dialetical Behavioural Therapy Workshop

Title: Remote Learning – Advanced Dialetical Behavioural Therapy workshop

This workshop on is delivered live by The Learning Curve Institute over four half days using Zoom, the remote conferencing platform. This is an excellent opportunity to avail of this training while working from home.

Advanced Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) was initially known as CBT for Borderline disorder. DBT is now used for treating many disorders such as Borderline, Bipolar, and other Personality Disorders. It has been proven useful for any level of suicidal behaviour, self-harming, or other self-destructive behaviour. DBT consists of a series of skills and techniques for working with personality disorders and other areas. Many people want to familiarise themselves with these skills without necessarily becoming a DBT therapist exclusively. The Advanced DBT course focuses on how to teach clients the group skills, how to develop further on these skills in one to one sessions and how to help clients with any form of self-destructive behaviour.

Note: Participants must have completed an introductory course in DBT prior to participating in this workshop.

This remote training course will allow you to interact with your trainer and other participants in a virtual classroom where, in addition to the workshop content there will be live discussions, question & answer sessions and skills practice. You can access the course wherever you have an internet connection; on a desktop, tablet or even a smartphone.

The course is suitable:

  • Professionals who see clients in one to one sessions and wish to add DBT techniques to their set of skills or want to use full DBT with their clients where applicable.
  • People or teams working in inpatient or community settings.
  • Mental health/psychiatric nurses, social workers, occupational therapists, clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, probation officers, people working in HR or Occupational Health departments.
