Dialectical Behavior Therapy


Valerie McNicholl, LCSW, CADC


This training is designed to give an overview of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), including the theory and history behind this treatment model. We will describe what is included in a DBT program and review the skills training modules:  core mindfulness skills, interpersonal effectiveness skills, emotion regulation skills, and distress tolerance skills.

  • Participants will engage in activities and exercises that are supported by DBT but also could be used with clients and groups in other programs.
  • PCS provides light refreshments at all trainings. Lunch is not provided.  Please bring a packed lunch as there will be a brief working lunch.
  • By attending a PCS training, you are giving PCS permission to videotape you and any discussion you participate in for video training purposes.
