DBT Training

The Process to Book Trainings, Seminars, and Keynote Speeches


Different organizations have different needs, and the training process begins with determining your goals. Each initial contact is followed up with a scheduled call to discuss your event and the type and depth of training desired. For some that will be a four-day DBT intensive with extensive experiential practice, and for others it may be a two-day DBT overview, a one day introduction to DBT concepts, skills, and tools, or a customized speech delivered at a special event.

“One size fits all” does not work for clients, and it does not work for training either. Whatever your needs, Dr. Pederson works to understand what you want so he can make targeted recommendations and customize the training content and approach accordingly. This includes reviewing your organization’s services and clinical philosophy and tailoring the DBT training to it.

If the phone conversation and follow-up communications indicate an effective match between Dr. Pederson’s services and your organization, then the details of your event related to content, scheduling, and other logistics are formalized in a straightforward contract.

I had searched far and wide for a qualified presenter to provide DBT training to our staff at our local mental health center. As the Clinical Director at Siouxland Mental Health Center I was particularly interested in someone who understood outpatient clinical practice and could explain DBT in a way that fit our reality at the mental health center. I feel very fortunate that in my search I was lead to Dr. Lane Pederson. Dr. Pederson was the right person for the job because he has provided direct care to Borderline patients for many years, and he has operated and directed outpatient clinics similar to our own. Dr. Pederson understood the realities we face on a day to day basis, and he had real-world solutions to the problems we encounter in an actual practice environment. Dr. Pederson was very accessible and explained his teaching style with a desire to make sure he was the right fit for our agency. Our staff of 25 therapists thoroughly enjoyed his sense of humor and his ability to relate to his audience. More so, they were impressed by his technical knowledge and his overall competency when it comes to delivering DBT to clients, and teaching DBT to other professionals. I can honestly say that when anyone asks me about DBT trainers, Dr. Lane Pederson is the only name I provide. From our experience, he's simply the best!
