Our agency, Seasons Center for Behavioral Health, was very pleased with the DBT training Dr. Lane Pederson provided to our clinicians. He knows the ins and outs of DBT and Borderline Personality Disorder and its treatment, but he also has such effective clinical skills, along with a wonderful teaching style, that made his DBT training for our group of clinicians so fantastic! Even after the training, he continues to be accessible to answer questions and provide consultation. It is clear he is committed to evidenced-based programming and assuring that clinicians are trained to effectively treat clients and improve client outcomes. We will continue to utilize his expertise in consultation and his DBT books and hand-outs for our adult and adolescent DBT groups and individual services, and would recommend him to any agency looking to train their clinicians in DBT!
