Master Class: Core Skills in DBT©


About this Course 

Master Class: Core Skills in DBT© has two parts: Part One: How to Teach Core Skills in DBT (12 hours) and Part Two: How to Structure and Run Skills Training Groups (4 hours). 

Part One focuses on teaching the skills. Annie McCall will provide helpful tips for using the two skills training manuals (DBT Skills Training Manual, 2nd Edition and DBT Skills Training Handouts and Worksheets, 2nd Edition).  She will provide demonstrations, examples and practices for the skills as well as potential pitfalls in teaching the skills.  This first 12 hours is practical material for anyone who will be teaching, coaching or utilizing skills with clients (individual psychotherapists, skills trainers, case managers, coaches, prescribers). 

The first 2 hours of the Part Two will teach how to set up a group, getting clients oriented to skills training group, explaining the group guidelines/rules and how to assign homework.  Participants will be assigned homework between the first and second classes. The second 2 hours will demonstrate how to conduct homework review in skills training and how to treat behaviors that interfere with group as well as behaviors that threaten to destroy the group. 

Core Skills in DBT© will provide 16 hours that may be used toward the 40 hours of training required for DBT certification (  Clinicians who have attended or plan to attend our 28.75 hour 5 Day Jump Start in Dialectical Behavior Therapy© can use these 16 hours toward certification as well as a means to learn Skills Training that is not covered in detail in the Jump Start. 

Who Should Attend

Both parts of this course would be beneficial for new skills trainers who will be leading or co-leading group as well as skills trainers who want to be oriented to the 2015 skills manuals. In addition, this course will be helpful for administrators/supervisors who are supporting DBT programs.
