One component of dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) is a consultation team composed of peer therapists. The role of the consultation team is to assist in the therapeutic process by providing feedback and support to therapists. As a DBT component, the consultation team meets weekly. Our experience, and that of the research, indicates that therapists who participate in consultation team show higher level of adherence to DBT than those who seldom met with a team. Our weekly meetings provide advice, share ideas and discuss ways to cope with difficult clients. Evidence also indicates that participation in a consultation team reduces the likelihood of burnout. Our DBT Consultation Team Format follows the Australian DBT Institute recommended format!
Clinicians are notoriously busy and finding a DBT team to fit in around heavy clinical loads can be extremely difficult. As well as running consultation teams from our Gold Coast Clinic in Southport, we offer two online options for clinicians unable to attend in person.
1/ Zoom Meeting Consultation Teams of 8 (fortnightly fee $100 plus GST)
2/ Zoom Meeting Consultation Teams of 12 (fortnightly fee $60 plus GST)
All clinicians interested in joining one of our consultation teams will go on a wait list until the consultation team has a 70% of capacity membership. To express your interest in the DBT consultation teams please send an expression of interest using the below form.
