    DBT is a multi-modal treatment. Although skills training is a single mode, it is by far the most popular mode of DBT. Many programs begin implementing this mode in the beginning of learning how to develop their DBT program. Perfect for support staff, those working on the front lines, and for direct care clinicians, this training will primarily focus on the concepts and the foundation of the DBT skills while at the same time helping those clinicians experienced in DBT expand their knowledge in them. Participants can also expect to learn how to structure and format a skills training group, understand the roles and functions of facilitators, begin to teach the concepts of the DBT skills, identify and confront specific therapy-destroying behaviors found in group, lead meaningful mindfulness exercises, and assign specific homework assignments to help strengthen skill generalization.
