Are there any resources on DBT-C model?

DBT-CEnglishTherapy / By Francheska Perepletchikova

Currently I have two books in preparation, namely, DBT-C treatment manual and DBT-C treatment handouts and worksheets. These materials are not yet available for distribution to general public. However, there are several ways to obtain training and materials. Participants of my workshops will be provided with treatment handouts and other pertinent materials. 

1. Interested clinicians can take a training workshop on DBT-C with Behavioral Tech. Information and registration for available courses is available on

2. Interested clinicians can register for available workshops on my site

3. Interested parents can take an educational course on the parent training component of DBT-C. Information and registration are available on my site

4. There are also several publications on DBT-C that may be of interest:
