Thank you, Alaska Eating Disorders Alliance, for bringing much-needed training to Alaska.Are you a therapist, psychologist, clergy, or other professional who is called upon for help by those who may be experiencing emotional dysregulation? Dialectal Behavior Therapy (DBT) may help.

DBT is an evidence-based, practical mode of treatment that provides specific skills that clients can use when they are feeling overwhelmed and at risk for relying on coping strategies that may cause them more suffering in the long term, such as eating disorder behaviors, self harm, or suicidal ideation.

The Alaska Eating Disorders Alliance (AKEDA) is pleased to provide this training opportunity at a rate that is highly subsidized by grant funders. Participants will gain 12 CEUs while learning the necessary skills to be able to train clients in individual and group settings.

Special thanks to funders including the GCI Suicide Prevention Fund at the Alaska Community Foundation, the Alaska Mental Health Trust, Anchorage East Rotary, GCI Gives, and Coastal Wellness & Counseling. Additional thanks to partners Alaska Behavioral Health and Southcentral Foundation.

Sign up now. All classes will be live, remote led via zoom and include 1 hour per month for 4 months of instructor follow-up as attendees begin implementing these skills and ideas in their practice.
