Event description

Description

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) is a proven treatment for chronically suicidal patients with Borderline Personality Disorder, for patients with eating disorders, depression, anxiety, addictions, anger problems, other impulsive behaviours, for adolescent mental health populations and for inpatient and outpatient settings. School counsellors in educational settings also use DBT to help high school students cope with transitional processes and manage parental conflict.

This DBT Training is specific to health and education professionals as well as students in a clinical training. Participants will receive a certificate of participation to indicate that they have received the necessary training to use DBT in their clinical practice.
