Behavioral Tech plans training opportunities throughout the U.S. to make high quality training accessible for clinicians practicing in different regions of America. This season’s training topics include Mindfulness and an overview of DBT.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), developed by Marsha M. Linehan, Ph.D., ABPP, at the University of Washington, is a comprehensive cognitive-behavioral treatment for borderline personality disorder (BPD) and other complex mental health disorders. Research has shown DBT to be an effective treatment in reducing suicidal behavior, psychiatric hospitalization, dropout from treatment, substance abuse, anger, and interpersonal difficulties.

Mindfulness, Willingness, and Radical Acceptance in Psychotherapy
Location: Los Angeles, CA
Mindfulness skills have emerged as an important focus of several empirically supported treatments. The roots of Mindfulness stem from the contemplative practices common to both Eastern and Western spiritual disciplines and from the emerging scientific knowledge about the benefits of “allowing” experiences rather than suppressing or avoiding them. Both Eastern and Western psychologies, as well as spiritual practices, are converging on these same insights. This training is intended for therapists using all approaches and is not aimed specifically at DBT or CBT therapists. Read more on our website.
