Running DBT Skills Development Groups Training

Running DBT Skills-Development Groups.

Running DBT Skills-Development Groups is a 3-day course from APT, the leading independent provider of DBT training courses in the UK and Ireland. You can attend this APT-Accredited course as an individual, or we can bring the training to your own organisation and train a group of 6-15 people. (Refresher course also available.)

Executive Summary:

This course lasts 3 days and is all about teaching delegates how to run skills development groups. These are an important part of becoming proficient in DBT, the rationale being that patients need not only to be motivated, gain insights and knowledge etc, but usually also need to acquire skills in:

This course is therefore all about coaching and practice. Every delegate will be expected to run such a group at least once (possibly jointly with another delegate), and will receive constructive feedback on their performance, and time to re-practice. The aim is to return every delegate to their workplace proficient in running DBT Skills Training Groups.

What you receive as a result of attending APT's DBT training:

All delegates are registered at APT as having attended the course, and receive a certificate to acknowledge their attendance, registration, and APT-Accreditation at the appropriate level. As a bona fide APT event, this course automatically has accreditation from The Association for Psychological Therapies. This accreditation is given weight by the fact of over 100,000 professionals having attended APT training.

Upon completion of the 3-day course, delegates will receive the relevant level of APT's Accreditation in DBT.
