Our DBT training program is lead by Peter King (Institute Director) and has been the foundation program of the Centre for Mental Health Education since 1999. Through the Centre for Mental Health Education, the staff of the Australian DBT Institute have delivered DBT education to thousands of mental health professionals Australia wide. Attendees have included Psychologists, Psychiatrists, Social Workers, Psychotherapists, Youth Workers, Occupational Therapists and Mental Health Nurses from Australia, Singapore, Canada, USA and New Zealand.

DBT provides individuals with Borderline Personality Disorder a combination of group skills training, individual psychotherapy and phone coaching. Participants in DBT programs are asked to monitor their symptoms and use learned skills daily, while tracking individual progress using diary cards and other strategies throughout therapy.

Each year the Australian DBT Institute provides a range of education opportunities. In 2018 the following offerings for mental health professionals will be available.
