Basics of DBT for Clinicians and Coaches (Lecture-Style Seminar) (Self-Study)



Did you know that of all the 500 different treatment modalities in mental health, barely 30 of them are evidenced-based? And of all the evidence-based practices, DBT is one of the most effective ones?

Regardless of your orientation, having the basics of DBT can enhance your practice to a level you may not have expected. Are you a clinician who would like just that for the sake of your clients and for the sake of your own growth and satisfaction? If so, please join us and learn the basics of DBT. While this is part of a DBT series, this first seminar will give you an edge on its own that makes the time invested worth it. Please join us and meet the below learning objectives.

This seminar is part of a weekly lecture-style series. If you are licensed in New York as a psychologist, social worker, or mental health counselor, you will be able to earn 1 CEU from each lecture-style seminar.

This series is also open for all other health professionals of any level or field throughout the United States and abroad.
