Intensive Training

Our Intensive Training is a 10-day course, delivered in two five-day sessions of instruction with six months in between. During the training we use role-plays, live demonstrations and videos to deepen your learning.

  1. The focus of part 1 is on the theoretical foundations and basic principles of RO DBT including radical openness, as well as treatment structure, targeting, alliance ruptures and repairs and chain and solution analyses.
  2. The focus of Part 2 is on how to become a better RO DBT therapist. This involves practicing and deepening your own self-enquiry practice, recognizing your own perceptual biases, chain analysis, targeting, and skills.

Live Webinars

We offer live webinars ranging from introductory to advanced levels.

We also advertise introductory webinars hosted by our Senior Clinicians, who are approved RO DBT trainers.
