The purpose of this training is to teach clinicians what to do once their clients have achieved behavioral control and are no longer actively trying to harm or kill themselves; yet still need to work on their trauma history or non-life-threatening mental health conditions. Stage two DBT® treatment uses rational emotive behavioral therapy (REBT) and Prolonged exposure to target any unresolved thinking patterns or anxieties. This is an advanced training geared at clinicians who already understand and practice DBT as a treatment modality.
