(Online Course)

This workshop, led by Erin Holcomb, LPC, is tailored to counselors who work with teens and young adults in a group or individual setting .  Participants will learn the basis for all five modules of DBT.  Erin will take DBT from a purely psycho-educational structure and help you integrate expressive and engaging activities that help with even the most resistant clients. 

We will be live-streaming this workshop due to COVID-19.

Cost: $135
