The purpose of the Advanced DBT Program is to support clinicians seeking to be credentialed DBT Practitioners and/or clinicians seeking support to implement a DBT or DBT Informed program in their workplace.
This program offers 10 months of support to mental health professionals seeking to implement a DBT or DBT Informed approach in their clinical practice.
