Our Launch Event: Welcome to DBT Training Australia - March 2023
Wednesday 29th March, 6-8pm (AEDT)
You can register now for this training online (see below).
Online registrations close on 29 March 2023 (5 days).
In celebration of the launch of DBT Training Australia, we are hosting an online evening to introduce ourselves to you, share with you our vision for DBT Training Australia, to provide some brief presentations on topics of interest (including DBT delivered via telehealth, DBT for PTSD and DBT for young people) and to hear about what you would like from us. There will be a limit of 100 people and we are extending the invitation first to those of you who have signed up to receive newsletters from us. Unfortunately, there won't be any canapes or champagne - in a country the size of Australia, the only way we could figure to host a launch that people could attend from across the country is virtually! If you're interested, please sign up below. Note: there won't be any cost.
