Therapist Directories

Listing your practice in a therapist directory helps potential clients locate your DBT practice. The listing of external sites does not signify an endorsement from Behavioral Tech.

Professional Networking

Are you interested in networking with other DBT providers? There are many ways for new and experienced providers to connect with like-minded colleagues.

ISIT-DBT (International Society for the Improvement and Teaching of DBT) is a volunteer organization with the sole task of organizing an annual conference to bring together DBT clinicians from around the US and around the globe. The ISITDBT conference aims to provide workshops for clinical development of DBT skills or DBT program development, as well as research panels to disseminate information about the ongoing evidence base that underlies DBT.

ABCT (Association For Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies) provides members with access to several benefits, including the ABCT list serv. The list serv allows members to share ideas and information concerning behavioral and cognitive-behavioral analysis, assessment, and therapy.

You can also search our Clinical Resource Directory to locate DBT programs in your area. The CRD is a voluntary listing of individuals and DBT teams who have completed one of our comprehensive training programs.
