Professionals working with suicidal adolescents with multiple problems are often challenged by complex clinical presentations and the many dilemmas that arise during treatment.

Evidence suggests that Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) can help suicidal adolescents and their families. This 1-day workshop explores DBT and its application to an adolescent population to engage and retain young people in therapy.

Participants will advance their knowledge in specific principles and strategies relevant to DBT skills training and coaching with adolescents and families, individual therapy, family sessions, and managing communication and coaching outside of session (e.g. phone calls, emails, texts, etc.). Specific attention will be paid to teaching adolescents and families the skills of dialectics, validation, and behaviour change (“Middle Path”).

Course Prerequisites: The Foundations in DBT (Online) or Essentials in DBT workshop is a prerequisite for this workshop. Clinicians are required to be trained to a level where they have knowledge of DBT, the standard content and processes of DBT.

Workshop content
– Become familiar with existing DBT research for suicidal multi-problem adults and adolescents
– Identify the theory, principles, functions, and modes of comprehensive DBT and explore how they apply to working with adolescents and families
– Introduce the biosocial theory
– Employ DBT commitment strategies with adolescents
– Target problematic behaviours
– Involve families in DBT.

Workshop's target audience!

This workshop is suitable for mental health professionals seeking to obtain a working knowledge of DBT’s adaptions for youth populations. Individuals from a range of professional backgrounds who work in community-based services, including youth, family, homeless, aged, welfare, alcohol and substance, mental health, and disability have found this workshop applicable to their individual settings in the past. Psychologists, Clinical Psychologists, Mental Health Nurses, Social Workers, Mental Health OTs, Psychotherapists, Counsellors and Psychiatrists have all found this workshop useful!

We have kept an eye on the Australian and international market for continuing professional development and have priced our workshops below that of many competitors. We currently do not receive government funding to deliver our workshops.

The most cost-effective way to register for one of CMHE’s workshops is to do so early. The dates and prices for our workshops are non-negotiable. Student places and groups of 5 or more are only offered at the early bird rate until two weeks before each workshop.

  • Pre-December Early Bird Registration $250 incl. GST (23% Discount)
  • Early Registrations $300 incl. GST (15% discount until 2 weeks before the workshop)
  • Last-Minute Registrations $340 incl. GST (Full price within 2 weeks of the workshop)

We have been delivering workshops since 1999 and have trialed a range of approaches including printing materials and providing them electronically to support all attendees’ development. To keep our prices low and avoid printing extensive resources, our service provides online access to all materials from this workshop via our CMHE Academy website.

If not having a printout of workshop resources prior to the workshop impacts your capacity to participate in this workshop, please contact our admin team at admin@dbtinstitute.com.au and they will send you a pdf version of the slides (no cost). Alternately, a workshop manual can be printed by our team and sent to you at the cost of $15 (includes postage).

No, we do not provide lunch for participants attending our workshops and courses. We do however arrange tea, coffee, and water from the beginning of each full-day workshop until the lunch break. Some locations also offer morning tea at an affordable rate so do offer morning tea at times.

Participants are given the option of a longer lunch or to order lunch at the morning tea break from local establishments and have their meal delivered to the training room.

We provide an electronic certificate to all participants of our workshops. Certificates can be downloaded from CMHE Academy and if you ever need to print them again you can do so from your CMHE Academy account.

Each year the Centre for Mental Health Education provides CPD opportunities to over 1,000 mental health professionals who claim their education with CMHE as CPD hours. All mental health professionals attending our CPD opportunities are eligible to claim CPD hours if the course/workshop/retreat is relevant to their work as mental health or counselling professionals. There is legislation and AHPRA acknowledgement of this very statement.

To record a professional development activity towards your CPD hours, members of mental health professional and counselling bodies are required to ensure the activity is relevant to them and is consistent with the categories defined in your particular professional body’s CPD Policy.

Health practitioners registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency must undertake continuing professional development (CPD). The CPD requirements of each National Board are detailed in the Registration Standards for each profession, published on each Board’s website (see below links for AHPRA CPD Statements). For professions not registered under AHPRA, their associations have professional development requirements.

Centre for Mental Health Education (CMHE) and our affiliates no longer seek the external endorsement of mental health professionals and counselling bodies due to AHPRA’s acknowledgement that when activities are relevant to your clinical practice they do not require such endorsement. Members of all mental health professional and counselling registration bodies can still accrue CPD hours by participating in activities of the Centre for Mental Health Education. Your CPD activity must be determined to be relevant to your individual professional requirements. 

All CMHE programs have been developed by qualified mental health professionals who are currently practising in their professional area, hold post-graduate qualifications, and are peer-reviewed. If CMHE courses are relevant to your practice as a mental health professional then our courses meet the requirements of mental health professional and counselling registration bodies as outlined by the Australian Health Practitioner legislation.

Please check with your professional leader or registered professional organisation for recommendations.
