The clinician team at the DBT Center of Korea received DBT Intensive Training Workshop at Behavioral Tech for two years in 2007-2008.
The clinician team at the DBT Center of Korea received DBT Intensive Training Workshop at Behavioral Tech, which is a training institution in Seattle, U.S. for two years in 2007-2008.
Unlike other psychotherapy, DBT requires a team of DBT therapists in order to provide the psychological services. Having such team increases the therapeutic effects in helping individuals with borderline personality disorder, emotion dys-regulation and suicidal ideation. Additionally, getting advice from each other within the clinican team is an important aspect of Practicing DBT, which helps clinicians to maintain the dialectical balance.
Through DBT Intensive Training, the DBT clinician team improved their skills and signed the commitment to treat those individuals in need of support. The workshop increased everyone’s awareness of the complexity and the effectiveness of DBT. At the same time, the workshop taught the clinicians that having a mindful state of mind is essential in helping the clients.
The leaders of the training were Dr. Sayrs and Dr. Korslund, who helped Dr. Linehan to protect the DBT community. Dr. Korslund’s demonstrated how to be a DBT charismatic skills training group leader and drew the participants’ attention. Dr. Sayrs allowed the participants to experience what validation feels like by giving gentle attention to every individual. The dialectical balance shown by the two DBT experts was impressive.
The clinician team of the DBT Center of Korea was invited to Dr. Marsha Linehan’s house to discuss the effective ways of introducing the DBT system in Korea. After having the two years of the DBT training through EBTCS and Tech, the team had no doubt that the DBT services would give new hopes to many Korean individuals.
