Belmont, MA (PRWEB) August 27, 2012
Behavioral Tech, founded by DBT treatment developer Dr. Marsha Linehan, is excited to announce a new training opportunity in Belmont, MA. The Five-Day Foundational DBT Training Course is designed for individual or group therapists who are already members of a functioning DBT team but have not completed the 10-Day DBT Intensive Training Course©.
This five-day training is meant to assist teams that have hired new staff or experienced turnover. It allows newer team members to get trained up at a five-day training that will cover the standard content of DBT. The training will assume that everyone in attendance works in an active DBT program, participates on a consultation team, and works with a comprehensively trained team. Only people who have attended the full 10 days of the Dialectical Behavior Therapy Intensive Training Course© are able to sponsor team members to Five-Day Foundational. This course is content heavy with five full days of training. DBT theory and strategies are taught in depth using lecture, video, role-play, and small group exercises.
Behavioral Tech trains mental health care providers and treatment teams who work with complex and severely disordered populations to use compassionate, scientifically valid treatments and to implement and evaluate these treatments in their practice setting. Behavioral Tech develops and applies the most effective and efficient methods of training and provides a range of opportunities to learn state-of-the-art treatments to a competent level. Behavioral Tech trainers are the most experienced and outstanding trainers in the field of DBT. To view all current DBT training options, visit the 2012 Fall Training Schedule online.
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). DBT is especially effective for those with chronic suicidal or other severe, dysfunctional behaviors. Research has shown DBT to be effective in reducing suicidal behavior, psychiatric hospitalization, dropout from treatment, substance abuse, anger, and interpersonal difficulties.
Behavioral Tech is the only company exclusively authorized to utilize and disseminate Dr. Marsha M. Linehan’s materials for training in DBT. Due to this relationship with the treatment developer, Behavioral Tech always maintains and trains with the most current materials.
