For Students & Graduates

DBT Internships

Behavioral Tech maintains a voluntary list of internships that advertise DBT training as a component of their training program. These internships are APA-approved unless otherwise noted. Contact the programs directly for more details, or visit the APPIC website and use the “Search By Name” option.

Please note: By providing this list, Behavioral Tech does not endorse these training sites and cannot verify whether these internships conduct Dr. Linehan’s model of standard DBT.

In addition, the Behavioral Research and Therapy Clinics at the University of Washington — the academic home of Dr. Linehan — manages its own list of graduate and postdoctoral training options.

If your organization or university offers DBT training as part of an internship program and you would like it added to the list, please send an email to Please include including the name of the organization, the address, and contact information, and use the subject line ‘DBT Internship.’
