Welcome to the Society for DBT’s website.  We are a professional organization for people who have an interest in or who are practicing Dialectical Behaviour Therapy in the United Kingdom and in Ireland.  Please consider membership in the organization.  We host an annual conference and other special events.  For example, in 2015 we hosted Marsha Linehan for a two day workshop.

We are also affiliated with with Linehan Institute in the USA and offer accreditation of therapists in line with the Linehan Institute.     At present, we have forty accredited DBT therapists in the UK and Ireland and are receiving more applications.  Please see the accreditation pages for information on this process, which is now a three part process that allows us to keep costs to you for accreditation to a minimum.  We will also be moving towards programme accreditation in 2016.
