TBC for CBT Dialectical Behavior Therapy On-Line Consultation/Supervision Team
A weekly, virtual professional development experience

The DBT Consultation team is often referred to as “therapy for the therapist.” The team’s role is to “help the therapist think clearly about how to conceptualize the patient, the relationship, and behavioral change in DBT theoretical terms, and how to apply the treatment skillfully.” (Linehan, 1993, p. 428). The team also helps each member maintain balanced attitudes and behaviors toward clients and members act as cheerleaders to maintain the motivation of each member.

As you know from your DBT training, the Consultation Team is one of the 4 modes of treatment required for comprehensive, effective DBT treatment. The Consultation Team also provides the ongoing learning, support and encouragement every therapist needs to keep going in the face of enormous clinical challenges.

TBC for CBT is offering an ongoing, virtual Consultation/Supervision Team led by Nancy Gordon, LCSW, a highly skilled and experienced supervisor, leader and trainer who has been Intensively Trained in DBT since 1998 and was the first therapist certified in the state of Florida in 2015 by the Linehan Board of Certification™ (LBC).  Membership is limited based on the length of the meeting.  Max. 4 participants for one hour, 6 for 90 minutes. Each session will conform to the DBT Consultation Team principles and format specified by Marsha Linehan. For a very detailed description of the DBT Consultation Team, please see: https://dbt-lbc.org/index.php?page=101147#consultation.  The difference between an adherent DBT Consultation Team and the TBC for CBT Consultation/Supervision Team is that we also incorporate supervision and training as needed into the sessions.  

When and Where
The TBC for CBT Consultation/Supervision Team meets for 60 or 90 minutes on Zoom.  A computer, tablet or cell phone with a camera is all the technology you will need. A high-speed internet connection and a head set with a microphone is recommended.  The Consultation/Supervision Team will meet at times that will work for participants.  Individual consultations or supervision sessions can also be scheduled if requested for more individualized supervision or practice management coaching.

The Learning Objectives
During the Consultation Team, participants will:

  • Utilize the Behavioral Agreements of the DBT Consultation Team
  • Utilize the Consultation Team Agreements
  • Participate in a variety of mindfulness practices
  • Utilize DBT Consultation Team Agenda Setting
  • Participate in Case Consultation (based on hierarchy of targets and urgency ratings);
  • Participate in learning and practicing DBT Skills and Concepts

The Cost
The cost of membership in the Consultation Team is a per person fee of $50 per session for an hour, $65 a session for 90 minutes. The benefits of membership include: participation in the weekly Consultation Team sessions; Unlimited access to files and resources of TBC for CBT collected over the last 20 plus years; and; Skills coaching calls  in between sessions FOR YOU!.

We will provide invoices and charge your credit card at the end of each month. Each member will provide a Credit Card Authorization form.  Other payment options are also available.  You may cancel your membership at the end of any month.  You will be charged for consultation/supervision sessions held despite attendance.  If the session is cancelled by the facilitator or we all agree to cancel due to holiday/hurricane, or whatever, that fee will be waived. If the facilitator cannot attend, the rest of the team is encouraged to meet and, of course there will be no charge for that session.  The goal is to help the team get to a place of self-sustainability by increasing members’ levels of competence and confidence in DBT and facilitating the team meeting with adherence.  

Who Should Participate
Members should have a basic DBT training and/or direct supervised experience in DBT and be actively leading, or working towards leading DBT skills groups and providing DBT individual therapy
