BPS Approved DBT Full Practitioner training is for qualified mental health or social work professionals. It is a ten day course with 7.5 hours supervision, casebook submission, case presentations by participants and a DBT exam. It leads to a DBT Practitioner Certificate from GreenWood Mentors Ltd., an established and reputable DBT training provider. The course content is accepted as part of the accreditation requirements of the Society for DBT (SfDBT), the UK DBT accreditation body.
The training will be delivered online to an exclusive group of up to twenty participants. We aim to replicate as far as possible the feeling of being in a room together, so that we can get to know each other and become a supportive and productive, validating group. The small number allows this, and also allows you to receive personal feedback and attention to your own work context.
The trainers for 2024 will be Dr Fiona Kennedy, who has delivered DBT training since 2006, throughout the UK and internationally, and Dr Gill Green. Fiona is known for her knack of making complex concepts accessible and for having fun. She has won awards from BUPA and a recommendation from the National Audit Office for her DBT training and services. Gill is a leader of our private DBT service and active DBT practitioner and trainer and also good at having fun.
Dates for March 2024 are 13, 14, 20, 21 and 25 – five days, online only, followed by 3 x 2.5 hour supervision sessions over the next months and four training days in October/November 2024. The course also includes casebook presentation and marking, exam marking and personal feedback form leading to a DBT Practitioner Certificate.
The cost of this course is £2,800 including a deposit of £800 now, the remainder to be paid before March 2024. A payment plan is available: the deposit of £800 plus 8 monthly payments of £250.
