Since the coronavirus outbreak, therapists have been thrown into teletherapy– seeing clients online. Because of this quick shift, I wanted to reach out to other therapists and offer free DBT training specifically for the child population, ages 6-12. This young population can be even more challenging to work with online, and DBT handouts and worksheets ease the process for therapists. DBT-C (DBT for children) skills are an effective treatment; new or experienced therapists can attain the skills, and then use them in sessions with children and caregivers. Download the DBT handouts and worksheets from my book, watch the videos to understand each skill and it’s use, and then implement them in your sessions with kids and caregivers. I hope you find them helpful in your in person or online sessions!
All DBT handouts and worksheets in the training are from my new book, DBT Therapeutic Activity Ideas for Kids and Caregivers.
Over the next three weeks, participants will learn DBT-C concepts and skills to be used in their in person or teletherapy practice from my book, DBT Therapeutic Activity Ideas for Kids and Caregivers, which has approximately 70 handouts and worksheets. In each training participants will learn one concept and two DBT-C skills. The structure of each training will be similar to a DBT skills group, and will consist of: mindfulness practice, homework review, learn and practice a new DBT-C skill, and a homework assignment for the week.

Participants will complete the weekly homework, and bring it to the next online training. Participants will keep track of their homework on this diary card.
