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!
