Course Description

DBT Informed Practice

Up to 6 months to complete

24 hours / $695, no textbook required

“Prepare the person for the path, not the path for the person.” In the course of practice, therapists will experience regular clinical encounters with clients whose emotions overwhelm them. Overwhelming emotion will also often serve as a block to the work of deeper therapies, such as MFT, EFT, CBT or ACT. Suitable for practitioners that work in community practice with issues such as suicidality, self-harm, and some personality disorders, DBT Informed Practice will teach practitioners how to help clients achieve greater emotional stability. Through eight online modules, students will learn how to apply these strategies across many client contexts to successfully support the client toward stabilization and long-term mental health. It is recommended that the student have access to a live client –or someone willing to role play- for this course. 

Time Commitment & Evaluation

Once payment is received, the student will receive a license key within one week, and can begin course whenever they wish. Each level will require the student to complete a set of 8 modules that will take about 3 hours each. Modules do not have to be done in one sitting, as they are self-directed. The student may progress through the course as quickly or as slowly they wish, though all eight modules must be completed within a maximum of six months. Modules are varied and made up of lectures, viewings, demos, supplemental readings, professional and reflective practice exercises. There are no tests or exams.

Assignments and Textbooks

Assignments are submitted through the online platform. Once all assignments have been submitted, it will take approximately 2-6 weeks to review and return materials. The student will receive their certificate of completion from Adler once this step is complete. Courses will draw from no more than two textbooks per course (texts have been kept under $100 USD per course); students will require these before they begin, and will not be able to complete assignments without them.
