The Jump Start in Dialectical Behavior Therapy© (Jump Start in DBT) is specifically designed to support practitioners in learning to deliver the evidence-based model of DBT. It will teach participants how to understand the treatment, how to conceptualize a case, and how to apply DBT in individual therapy, skills training, milieu- or telephone-based coaching, and in consultation teams. This training is principally designed to support existing teams in training new therapists (individual therapists, skills trainers, prescribers, coaches and case managers). 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. The goal of this course is to develop effective practitioners and sustainable programs by training practitioners to expand teams or replace therapists on existing teams. 

*Certification as a DBT therapist – please review www.dbt-lbc.org for more information on requirements for certification.
