The Dialectical Behavior Therapy Training Program at the Columbia University School of Social Work, now in its 12th year, was developed in collaboration with Marsha M. Linehan, PhD, ABPP, the treatment developer at the Behavioral Research & Therapy Clinics at the University of Washington.

This program is the first and only DBT training program in a School of Social Work.

It comprises summer study and a year-long, rigorous academic curriculum, paired with field-based DBT internship experiences that take place under experienced, intensively trained, and certification-eligible supervisors.  NOTE: Attendance at an information session is required prior to application.

Application deadline: February 7, 2017. NOTE: Applications for May 2017 are accepted on a rolling basis.
