DBT for Case Managers

PLEASE NOTE: This training is no longer being offered. If you are interested this training, please contact us at [email protected].

On Thursday, May 22, 2014, the NH Coalition to End Homelessness will host a one-day training on Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) for Case Managers. Dialectical Behavior Therapy is a cognitive-behavioral approach that emphasizes the psychosocial aspects of treatment. While DBT is traditionally the standard of care for borderline personality disorder, practice and research have shown that it is applicable to many other populations and settings.  However, DBT is typically only available to masters-level therapists, and takes the form of multiple day-long trainings.  This training will provide case managers and other direct service providers with specific skills that will help them successfully engage with their clients and produce better outcomes.
