Announcing the First Intensive Training in the DBT Prolonged Exposure Protocol

We are very excited to announce that we will be hold­ing the first ever inten­sive train­ing in the DBT Pro­longed Expo­sure pro­to­col on March 26–29, 2015 at the Uni­ver­sity of Wash­ing­ton in Seat­tle.  This 4-day work­shop is designed to pro­vide in-depth train­ing in how to inte­grate PTSD treat­ment into stan­dard DBT with high-risk and multi-problem clients.  This is also the first event in a new series of work­shops that will be offered
by the BRTC Exper­i­men­tal Train­ing group to
pro­vide smaller scale, advanced train­ings to DBT clinicians.

You can find detailed infor­ma­tion about the train­ing and sub­mit an appli­ca­tion at: http://depts.washington.edu/brtcdbt/
Space is lim­ited to 40 par­tic­i­pants, so be sure to apply early!
