Jump Start in Dialectical Behavior Therapy© - ONLINE


Dates: October 4-8 and 18-22, 2021 (Ten, 3.25-hour sessions)

Location: Online via Zoom

Instructors: Shari Manning, Ph.D.

The Jump Start in DBT© is specifically designed to support practitioners in learning to deliver the evidence-based model of DBT.  All modes of treatment in DBT weave principles and strategies and structure together in a way that moves clients toward the lives they want to live.  DBT individual therapy weaves these complex principles together with precision and compassion.  When clinicians can deliver DBT individual psychotherapy, they can deliver any other mode of the treatment.  This training focuses learning and practicing all aspects of DBT individual psychotherapy.  The Jump Start in DBT© training follows the course of DBT Stage 1 Individual Psychotherapy from the intake session, through the first four sessions which are called Pre-Treatment and through the flow, principles and protocols for individual sessions in Stage 1.  The goal is for new DBT therapists to be able to begin seeing clients immediately following this training. 

Certified DBT Individual Clinicians report that repeated training in the structure, strategies and principles increases their confidence and competence to deliver DBT individual Psychotherapy.  This training is principally designed to support in training new therapists. The Jump Start in DBT© may also be used as a refresher training for previously trained DBT therapists who are beginning the certification process for DBT Certified Individual Therapist (www.dbt-lbc.org). 

The Jump Start in DBT© curriculum emphasizes case-based learning (clinical examples) and experiential learning (role plays, exercises and homework) to support the individual and team in developing the capabilities necessary to complete Certification as a DBT therapist*.  Because DBT is a team-based treatment and anyone providing any mode of DBT is required to be on a consultation team, part of the training will include how to be an effective DBT consultation team member.

This course will NOT be teaching the content of DBT Skills Training Groups. Skills will be addressed as they are used in DBT individual psychotherapy, but the actual skills will not be taught.  If you are unfamiliar with the skills, our recommendation is that you complete the Master Class: Core Skills in DBT©BEFORE beginning the Jump Start in DBT©.

Participants who have attended the Jump Start in DBT© will meet the prerequisites required to attend our Advanced Case Conceptualization in DBT© in February 2022.  The Case Conceptualization training is designed to move into DBT case conceptualization with DBT Individual psychotherapy interventions.
