The DBT Masterclass is a 4-day course from APT, a leading independent provider of DBT training courses in Canada. We bring the training to your own organization and train a group of 6-15 people, wherever you are in Canada. (Refresher course also available.)
The major teaching techniques on this course are case presentation and discussion, video-presentations, and reflective exercises, so delegates are expected to substantially develop both their knowledge and their skills during the four days.
Delegates have the opportunity to do several things:
Note: To attend this course you must have or be eligible for APT's DBT Accreditation, Level 3 and, because of the case material likely to be discussed, also have a professional qualification which insists upon patient confidentiality.
All delegates are registered at APT as having attended the course, and receive a certificate to acknowledge their attendance, registration, and APT-Accreditation at the appropriate level. As a bona fide APT event, this course automatically has accreditation from The Association for Psychological Therapies. This accreditation is given weight by the fact of over 100,000 professionals having attended APT training.
Upon completion of this 4-day course, delegates will receive the relevant level of APT's Accreditation in DBT.
Option 1: Bring the course to your organization:
We bring this 4-day course to your own organization for a fixed fee of $8,995 (plus tutor travel and accommodation expenses) and up to 15 people can attend.

Option 2: 'Train the Trainer':
If you or a colleague are a senior professional (e.g. consultant psychologist) and have a talent for communication and teaching, then you are welcome to apply to become an APT-accredited tutor. You could then tutor the course - or your chosen modules from it - in your own organization, under license.
This is not only a highly appropriate use of senior professionals, but it also saves your organization the tutor-component of the fee (around 50%) each time you run it or your chosen modules.

APT prides itself on the feedback we receive about our courses. Below are just some of the great comments the DBT Essentials course has received.
“Oh my goodness... where to start... Hard work, thought provoking but ultimately very inspiring. The tutor's style of delivery brought to life the previous 6 days of training and enabled me to visualise how a DBT service might work with our partners in NPS. She also gave me confidence in myself to take these skills forward into my everyday practice. Thanks!"
“Once again, thank you for really fantastic training. The examples you provide are always so thought provoking and relevant. Invaluable experience of actually running a group. Thanks very much"
