What is DBT?
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an evidence-based treatment designed in the 1980s by Marsha Linehan, Ph.D. to treat high-risk behaviors among individuals who had poor prognoses. A Certification in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) trains professionals on an empirically based therapeutic approach that teaches skills to patients struggling with emotional regulation, self-harm, suicidal ideation, borderline personality disorder, and other challenging conditions.
Implementing DBT is particularly impactful for clients in these specialty areas:
- Juvenile Justice System
- Substance Use
- Eating Disorders
- Adults & Adolescents
- Correctional System Residential or Outpatient Programs
- Private Practice
On-Demand DBT Certification
The Cohort Experience
For the first time, you'll earn your DBT certification as part of a specialized DBT team, meeting in small groups with Dr. Galietta to review diary cards, session notes, treatment summaries, and case conceptualizations for current clients. Participating in a group offers multiple perspectives on cases, encourages thoughtful discussions, and promotes problem-solving through collaboration. Group members can lean on each other, share experiences, ask questions, and learn collectively. The live consultations with Dr. Galietta provides a platform to receive direct feedback, clarify doubts, and deepen your understanding of DBT in action.
One of the benefits of the cohort experience is the individualized attention participants will receive, given the small group size. Limited to just 10 spaces, this format ensures individualized attention and fosters an intimate learning environment.
