The Dialectical Behavioural Therapy Service specialises in the assessment and treatment of young people who have a history of self-harm, and symptoms associated with borderline personality disorder such as impulsiveness, unstable relationships, anger, difficulties controlling emotions and feelings of emptiness.

We provide assessment, treatment, consultation and training. Treatment involves individual therapy and group-skills training for the young person. The young person’s parents or carers will also take part in group skills training.

We offer a variety of training courses and consultation services for individuals, mental health services and other agencies supporting young people with emotion dysregulation, self-harm and related difficulties, and their parents or carers.

We can provide a range of teaching and training events to meet your organisation’s requirements.

Our packages and topics include:

  • DBT skills for clinicians
  • Assessment and treatment of Self-Harm and Suicidal Behaviours
  • Emotion Regulation
  • DBT skills for parents
  • DBT skills for carers of looked after children
  • DBT-informed crisis telephone support
  • DBT-informed psychiatry with complex, high-risk cases
  • Developing a DBT service in a CAMHS setting
