Advance notice – online DBT Foundational training – March 2021:

With the ongoing uncertainties of covid, we’re launching a five-day DBT Foundational training in a new online format. The training is pencilled for March 2021. It will be spread over 4 weeks with two consecutive days in the first week and one day for each of the following three week.

DBT Foundational training is for new members of Intensively trained DBT teams who want to get up to speed with the theory and practice of DBT. Click here for more info on the standard (in-person) format of this training. Feel free to let us know if you are interested in this training - we are keen to gauge the interest.

Other online training formats are anticipated for the first half of 2021.

In person training? We remain committed to resuming in-person training once the covid situation is more predictable.
