DCP Wales presents a Marsha Linehan event

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT): ‘Where we were, where we are, and where are we going’

Monday 14th September 2015 at The Quay Hotel and Spa

Please note, bookings for this event closed at 12.00 on Friday 4th September 2015 and we are now operating a wait list.

As part of the 50th anniversary celebrations of the Division of Clinical Psychology, DCP Wales is delighted to be able to host an event with Professor Marsha Linehan who is a leading expert and designer of a well-evidenced and NICE supported Dialectical Behaviour Therapy. Marsha Linehan is a Professor of Psychology, Adjunct Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Washington and Director of the Behavioral Research and Therapy Clinics, a consortium of research projects developing new treatments and evaluating their efficacy for severely disordered and multi-diagnostic populations.

Having a historical perspective, the event will focus on the following themes:

  • Understanding of the meaning of the word Dialectical and how this differs from standard DBT.
  • Identification of the key characteristics of DBT and how these were developed
  • Recognition of the benefits of using DBT to treat Borderline Personality Disorder and other Axis I and II disorders
  • Recognition of the modifications to treatment since its inception and a description of the history of changes to DBT over time.

*Free lunch included, please confirm dietary requirements on registration*
