If, after following a 5-day theoretical part, you would like to meet the training requirements of the 10-day ‘Intensive training’, it is possible to follow the second week of the intensive training after following a switching (‘follow-up’) day. The 5-day theoretical part includes the DBT elective modules within the clinical psychologist training at the RCSW in Nijmegen, RINO South in Eindhoven or RINO GROUP in Utrecht. It also concerns the open registration 5-day DBT training at RINO GROUP in Utrecht.
During this second week, the treatment and training strategies are repeated and deepened. Moreover, you show in a presentation how you have implemented DBT as an individual, in your team and in your organization. Thereafter, consultation questions can be asked. Between the ‘chain’ day and the remaining 5 days (corresponding to the second week of the 10-day Intensive training), the participants are therefore expected to perform assignments and start applying DBT.

Additional information: Completion of the “Intensive DGT training” or 5-day “DGT basic training” and the “bridging training” gives access to the certification process
This training takes place on six days; a ‘chain’ day and a block of five days with an interval of several months. The ‘chain’ day lasts 8 hours and the block of five days lasts 45 hours, plus 53 hours in total before and in between the course. Resulting in a total study load of 106 hours.
Before the start of the training, the participants are expected to have read the following books:
- “Skills training manual for treating borderline personality disorder” written by Marsha M. Linehan
- “Dialectical behavior therapy for borderline personality disorder: Theory and methods” written by Marsha M. Linehan.
Cognitive behavior therapists, behavioral therapeutic workers, mental health psychologists, clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, psychotherapists, social psychiatric nurses or psychologists who have at least followed 5-day theoretical basic training DBT as described above.
To acquire a certificate the participant has to be present for at least 90% of the entire training. If the participant is unable to meet this requirement, then is it possible, after having consulted Dialexis, to participate in another training to catch up.
