Behavioral Research and Therapy Clinics (BRTC) on the University of Washington campus is accepting applications for a Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Family & Friends Skills Group. Here is some information from their webpage:
The BRTC is primarily a research clinic, offering treatment to members of the community as part of our clinical trials. We are not currently recruiting for any clinical trials, but we periodically have openings for new clients in our Treatment Development Clinic (TDC). Through TDC, clients receive Dialectical Behavior Therapy from doctoral students under the supervision of licensed psychologists.
TDC is currently accepting new clients in our FRIENDS AND FAMILY DBT Skills group. This group is designed for family members, friends, and caregivers of people with chronic mental and physical health problems like borderline personality disorder, bipolar disorder, and Alzheimer’s disease. For more information on this group, please call 206-543-3765.
I would urge all family members to consider attending this class (or a similar class). These DBT-FST (Dialectical Behavior Therapy Family Skills Training) are invaluable in understanding your family member with borderline personality disorder and creating a healing environment in the home.
