A WORD FROM INSPIRED

A FULLY TRAINED AND QUALIFIED DBT PROVIDER SHOULD ANSWER, "YES," TO THESE QUESTIONS!

  • Was your training through

       Behavioral Tech?

  • Have you completed a 10-day Intensive

       Training OR did you go to a 5-day Foundational

       Training and finish the post check-list                                                      requirements (including exam) through

       Behavioral Tech?

  • Are you currently a member of a DBT                                             Consultation Team of intensively trained

       DBT therapists that follows the Linehan

       model for DBT Consultation Teams?

  • Have you been supervised by an expert

       DBT therapist approved by Behavioral Tech?

  • Are you regularly continuing your DBT training and education through Behavior Tech/Linehan Institute?

  • Do you teach DBT skills classes weekly as taught through your Behavioral Tech training?

  • Do you do DBT protocol phone coaching as taught through your Behavioral Tech training?

  • Do you use Linehan’s Diary Cards as taught through your Behavioral Tech training?

  • Is your DBT program comprised of the following four components, as set out in Linehan's DBT model: 

    • Individual DBT Sessions;

    • Weekly DBT Classes;

    • Phone Coaching; and

    • DBT Peer Consultation Team?

DBT is a WHOLE, INTENSIVE PROGRAM. Properly trained DBT therapists provide treatment that follows the model developed by Marsha Linehan, Ph.D. Qualified DBT providers have training and implement DBT in alignment with the questions to the left. The answer to these questions should be “YES” if the therapist is stating they are offering a DBT specialization. YOU HAVE THE RIGHT to ask these questions and to ask to see related Behavioral Tech Certificates to find out if you are getting a properly trained DBT therapist. Please, do not assume you are getting the COMPREHENSIVE 4-PART DBT PROGRAM or an intensively trained DBT therapist solely because the name DBT is emphasized. You can, and should, ask questions to ensure you are partnering with an appropriately Linehan trained and qualified DBT provider!
