The Australian DBT Institute is a specialist service which has been developed in partnership with the Centre for Mental Health Education providing leadership in the delivery of Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), mindfulness based approaches and modified DBT programs. Each year the institute develops mental health professionals throughout Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia in Dialectical Behaviour Therapy. Our DBT workshops include one day workshops (introduction, skills, individual therapy, AOD populations & youth), four day retreats (Far North Queensland, & Thailand) and our twelve month comprehensive training in DBT (Melbourne & Sydney). Each year the Australian DBT Institute is also contracted by individual workplaces to develop their own DBT programs and educate staff onsite.

From 2018 our Executive Director, Peter King, will be running a number workshops in Stabilisation Based Therapy (SBT). Peter developed SBT from 20 years of clinical experience and through the outcomes of his PhD which identified effective interventions for individuals with emotion dysregulation including Complex PTSD and BPD. Peter’s 12 day program covers aspects of DBT and Somatic Trauma Therapy as well as a phase based approach to management of individuals through crisis to trauma memory processing.
