This workshop is for you if:

  • You are a DBT therapist and are struggling with the most effective interventions to help your client decrease interpersonal chaos with loved ones and improve their environment
  • You are a DBT therapist and want to learn more about effective ways to incorporate families and partners into sessions
  • You are a DBT therapist and are finding that individual and skills group sessions may not be enough for your clients, as the people in their lives don’t have the skills they need and they may be willing to learn
