Lane Pederson is hands down one of the most dynamic and sought after speakers we have ever worked with. He has taught thousands of professionals across the country always with exceptional evaluations. What impresses me most about Lane is his commitment to putting evidence based practice into the hands of clinicians to improve client outcomes. The expertise and passion he brings to his seminars has made him one of our most sought after speakers. Lane has established himself as one of the nation's leading authorities on DBT through his seminars, best-selling books and commitment to exceptional client services.

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!

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!
