Dialectical Behavior Therapy for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

DBT was originally developed to help clients struggling with borderline personality disorder (BPD). Many of these clients also have PTSD, and vice versa. DBT helps clients analyze their emotional and psychological issues and teaches them to enact new behaviors. It encourages clients to identify their emotional experiences and manage them through the skills they learn and practice in therapy. DBT teaches mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, distress tolerance and emotional regulation skills with real-life scenarios. With DBT-PTSD, clients are guided to transfer these skills from therapy to real life and use them to cope with the symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, anxiety and co-occurring mental and emotional issues.


At the end of the program, participants will be better able to:

  • Define how DBT-PTSD treats co-occurring complex PTSD in clients diagnosed with borderline personality disorder (BPD)

  • Learn and practice techniques used to address severe dissociative states during exposure

  • Identify one to two ways that DBT-PTSD treatment modality can be integrated into participants' clinical work

This training is free to clinicians. Fro 2 CEs, there's a $25 charge. Checks preferable, made out to Mind Therapy Clinic


Teachings are appropriate for healthcare professionals as well as the general public. Healthcare professionals will be able to incorporate the tools and practices offered in this program in ways beneficial to clients or patients.

In her free time, you can find Katy spending time with her two Bernese Mountain Dogs, trying to master the perfect sheet of brownies, or olympic weightlifting as her form of exercise and mindfulness.
