The Linehan Institute (www.linehaninstitute.org) recommends two resources.
1. DBT Linehan Board of Certification
For a list of therapists certified by the DBT Linehan Board of Certification, see their directory HERE.
2. DBT Clinical Resource Directory (CRD)
The directory is available HERE.
The website describes this directory as “a list of teams with at least one member who has completed either the Dialectical Behavior Therapy Intensive Training™ or the Dialectical Behavior Therapy Foundational Training™ through Behavioral Tech (BTECH) or the University of Washington Behavioral Research & Therapy Clinics (UW BRTC). Only members who have completed training are listed. Listing is voluntary and does not include all persons who have been through BTECH or UW BRTC trainings. The CRD is a resource, not an endorsement, of DBT providers. Behavioral Tech, LLC does not certify DBT practitioners or programs, nor does it make specific referrals. In addition to this resource list, you may wish to consult other resources including your doctor or other trusted professionals, your state’s psychological or psychiatric association, local university psychology or psychiatry departments, or your local chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness. Inquire into the credentials of any practitioner before choosing a therapist.”
