Q:

How will I know if my DBT Program might be ready for applying?

A:

The DBT-Linehan Board of Certification has created a self-assessment tool for evaluating your DBT Program's readiness to apply.  See the link for the Self Assessment Tool to check out your program's status.

 
Q:

When will DBT Program Certification be offered?

A:

The DBT-LBC Board's Program Committee has conducted a pilot study with 4 DBT clinics across the country to prepare for launching the nation-wide availability of DBT Program Certification.

And now that DBT programs have members of their Teams certified, those with a Team Leader who is certified are eligible to apply as of April 1st. The best place to start preparations is by going to the Self-Assessment link under Program Certification and check out where your Program stands.  Team Leaders should sign into their My Account page where they will see a Program Application tab available now.  Begin the application there.

We will keep you updated as progress is made.
