Professional Training and Consultation

The Dialectical and Cognitive Behavior Therapy Center offers training and consultation in both DBT and CBT to mental health professionals and trainees from psychiatry, psychology, social work and allied fields. We work with practitioners in settings such as psychiatric hospitals, private practice, and school systems.

We specialize in training mental health professionals in the delivery of CBT and DBT in real world settings. Our trainings can range from an introduction to CBT or DBT to more specialized topics such as how to deliver CBT or DBT in specific settings and/or with specific populations. We would be pleased to work closely with you to design training in either DBT or CBT that meets your specific needs. For all workshops, we provide the curriculum and materials and can hold the training at your site or at our offices.

Our consultation offerings are focused on helping therapists increase their CBT and DBT skills and adherence to CBT and DBT. We often will focus on helping therapists to identify and target clinically relevant behaviors of their clients and themselves and learn to solve areas where they may be stuck with a client who is not progressing as expected. Developing strong case conceptualizations and linking these to CBT or DBT strategies is another area where we focus.  We offer consultation to both individual practitioners and small groups. Consultation typically would occur at our offices. However, for larger groups we could also meet at your site or office.
