Interpersonal Effectiveness in DBT

8-week Deep Dive into Interpersonal Skills 

This 8-week DBT training provides an in-depth teaching of the DBT skills of Interpersonal Effectiveness outlined in the DBT Skills Handouts and Worksheets: Second Edition by Marsha M. Linehan. Interpersonal Effectiveness is all about creating healthy relationships and strengthening existing relationships. In this course participants will learn skills for how to effectively ask for what you want (or say no), while also maintaining respect for yourself and others.

In this experiential skills group you will learn essential skills for assisting your clients in improving their communication in relationships (and in yours as well)! As care providers, we have a tendency to value the needs of others over ourselves and may have difficulties with saying no. This leads to burnout, resentment and ultimately conflict in our relationships. Learn how to establish boundaries, while strengthening your relationships.

Wednesdays 7-9 p.m. ET | 5-7 p.m. MT

Oct. 26 - Dec. 14, 2022

Student Price & Early Bird: $655

DBT Virtual in partnership with DBT HOUSE presents:

Leading Effective Mindfulness Practices in DBT
Thursday, October 13, 2022
12-1pm ET / 10-11am MT


Mindfulness skills in DBT are an essential component of the therapy and foundational to the acquisition and application of all other DBT skills. When delivering DBT in both individual and group settings, therapists are encouraged to integrate mindfulness through informal and formal guidance. In this webinar you will learn how to avoid common mistakes when leading and debriefing mindfulness practices and discover best practices for promoting self-inquiry, skills development, and affective and attentional regulation. You will explore tips to optimize the facilitation of both informal and formal mindfulness practices through a trauma-informed and embodied approach. This webinar is for those who are interested in developing more meaningful and effective guidance in their mindfulness facilitation, through the lens of DBT principles. This is suitable for both DBT and non-DBT practitioners and DBT skills group facilitators who lead mindfulness in their therapeutic work.

What is DBT?

DBT is a skills-based therapy where the general goal is to "learn how to change your own behaviours, emotions, and thoughts that are linked to problems in living" (Linehan, M., 2015). DBT sets out to solve these problems in living by providing a set of acceptance and change-based skills aimed at increasing awareness of the present moment (Mindfulness); tolerating distress and accepting reality (Distress Tolerance); understanding and regulating emotions (Emotion Regulation); and improving interpersonal communication (Interpersonal Effectiveness).


DBT House was established as a resource to help educate and inspire clinicians interested in learning more about DBT. What makes DBT House's approach different than other training programs is the experiential element we bring to DBT Training. In this participatory experience, you will learn DBT by actually doing DBT. That is why our courses are 11 and 18 weeks. Through participating in Skills Group yourself,  just as a client would, you will be better equipped to learn and apply DBT. 

DBT HOUSE is founded and operated by Hailey Goldberg. Hailey is a Registered Social Worker and one of the few Canadian certified DBT clinicians by the Linenan Board of Certification™. The DBT HOUSE Team of Skills Trainers is comprised of experienced, talented DBT clinicians and educators who are eager to share their passion for this work with you!
