​LIFTED COUNSELLING & CONSULTING

dbt program development


Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is one of the most effective treatments today. However, implementing DBT programs from scratch can be difficult for agencies and organizations. Here at Lifted Counselling and Consulting, we offer a comprehensive and culturally-informed DBT program development tailored to your agency and organization’s needs. We understand that every community, every team and every organization is different. Thus, whether it is skills training, clinical consultation, case supervision, or program implementation, we believe in creating and custom designing something that is effective, efficient and empowering for your staff and clients.
