CBC has become the first—and only, to date—Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)-Linehan Board of Certification, Certified Program in New York State. The DBT- Linehan Board of Certification was formed to develop a comprehensive way to certify individual therapists in their competency to deliver DBT effectively and to certify programs that demonstrate their ability to deliver DBT programmatically with fidelity to the model as it has been researched.

  • “I am so grateful for this training. The level of respect each trainer had for one another and the participants was such a good model of how clinicians should act with their patients and colleagues. I feel so grateful to have had a year of DBT training at CARES and yet this 5-day training felt so much more impactful. I'm so excited about DBT. I really feel so passionate about bringing this to Beth Israel Medical Center. I really hope my child team gets to work with CBC again. Thank you for everything!”

I feel motivated to use these strategies with my clients and perhaps even pursue organizational change in my current placement to be more DBT adherent.
