What is DBT?
DBT is an innovative and unique treatment model for Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), developed by Professor Marsha Linehan at University of Washington, Seattle.
Its popularity has grown rapidly in the USA and increasingly in Europe, chiefly due to its success in effectively treating client groups whose emotional problems are particularly difficult to manage within a therapeutic relationship or an institutional setting.
Treats patients with a history of chronic suicidal behaviour.
Is a unique, team-based Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
Enhances the morale and effectiveness of the therapist.
Can be adapted for specialties such as Eating Disorders, Adolescents and Substance Misuse amongst others.
Is recognised to treat women with BPD for whom reducing recurrent self-harm is a priority (NICE, 2009).
Is cited as an evidence-based intervention in A Vision for Change (Government of Ireland 2006. pp162-3).
British Isles DBT
British Isles DBT Training is the sole licensed UK provider of training, consultation and supervision in Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, officially recommended for consideration in the Borderline Personality Disorder Guideline for treating repeated self-harming behaviours (NICE, 2009). In partnership with the Linehan Institute*, our team has contributed to establishing international accreditation criteria for DBT therapists, based on rating tapes using the adherence scale developed by Marsha Linehan's research lab in Seattle. The Society for Dialectical Behaviour Therapy now forms the only demonstrably independent Board Of Accreditation in the UK which is accepting applications for accreditation in the UK and Ireland based on these international criteria.
All our trainers have been supervised either by Marsha Linehan or one of her original DBT Consultation team
All our trainers are experienced clinicians who have had their sessions assessed to ensure they are adherent to Linehan's model before attempting to train others-the only UK training team with *International Affiliate status
British Isles DBT Training operates an apprenticeship program for new trainers-in-training under the supervision of Dr Michaela Swales in which their technical expertise is honed by more experienced DBT Consultants. Constant assessment and feedback ensures that quality is maintained at the highest standard.
