Credentialing is the process of establishing the qualifications of licensed professionals, organisational members or organisations, and assessing their background and legitimacy. Many health care institutions and provider networks conduct their own credentialing, generally through a credentialing specialist or electronic service, with review by a credentialing committee. The Australian DBT Institutes uses peer reviews and 7 Criterion for Credentialed DBT Practitioners!

Three Pathways to Credentialing as DBT Practitioners
Please carefully review the criteria below before committing to one of the three below pathways for becoming a DBT Practitioner through the credentialing process of the Australian DBT Institute. All Credentialed DBT Practitioners are to meet the Education, Practice, Professional and Philosophical requirements of Credentialing as a DBT Practitioner.
PATHWAY 1: NEW TO DBT
Yet to complete DBT Comprehensive Training
Pathway 1 is for clinicians who have not completed a comprehensive DBT training program. The Institute’s 10-month DBT Comprehensive training program provides clinicians with the training and development to meet the credentialing criteria listed below.
PATHWAY 2: DBT GRADUATE
Completed DBT 4 Day Comprehensive Training
Pathway 2 is for clinicians who have completed a 4-day training in DBT online or in-person or part of an intensively trained DBT team. Our online credentialing program supports clinicians implementing a DBT or DBT informed approach over a minimum of one cycle to highlight their knowledge of DBT
PATHWAY 3: SELF-PACED
Clinicians with 5+ years of DBT Experience
Pathway 3 is for clinicians who have over five year’s clinical experience in the delivery of DBT and DBT informed approaches. Credentialing on option 3 requires clinicians to complete self-paced tasks to articulate their knowledge and application of a DBT informed approach.
