DBT House was established as a resource to help educate and inspire clinicians interested in learning more about DBT. What makes DBT House's approach different than other training programs is the experiential element we bring to DBT Training. In this participatory experience, you will learn DBT by actually doing DBT. That is why our courses are 11 and 18 weeks. Through participating in Skills Group yourself,  just as a client would, you will be better equipped to learn and apply DBT.

What is Dialectical Behaviour Therapy?

DBT is a skills-based therapy where the general goal is to "learn how to change your own behaviours, emotions, and thoughts that are linked to problems in living" (Linehan, M., 2015). DBT sets out to solve these problems in living by providing a set of acceptance and change-based skills aimed at increasing awareness of the present moment (Mindfulness); tolerating distress and accepting reality (Distress Tolerance); understanding and regulating emotions (Emotion Regulation); and improving interpersonal communication (Interpersonal Effectiveness).
