International Affiliates

As DBT continues to gain international recognition for its effectiveness, we have partnered with other expert organizations across the globe to support the dissemination and implementation of DBT. Through collaborative partnerships with our International Affiliates, we encourage clinical training and research related to DBT. We recognize our International Affiliates as fellow leaders who support the advancement of DBT and other evidence-based treatments, and Behavioral Tech coordinates these collaborative partnerships with the goal of building a strong international community with common values.
