Join DCACP for the Special Fall Seminar for Collaborative Professionals Event: Dialectical Behavior Therapy: Adapting Techniques for Collaborative Professionals Presented by: Britt Rathbone, LCSW-C, Linehan Board of Certification-DBT Certified Collaborative professionals often see clients at times of extreme stress and when symptoms are at their very worst. Emotions are frequently heightened and can interfere with reason and effective decision-making. Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is an evidence-based treatment for individuals with extreme emotions and behaviors that interfere with achieving goals. DBT effectively treats multiple diagnoses simultaneously with the highest risk clients and provides necessary support for the therapist. This training will orient collaborative professionals to DBT in the clinical setting with a specific focus on techniques that may be adapted to increase effectiveness of their work. This event will be held via Zoom. Note: No CEU’s or CLE’s will be provided for this program. However, attendees will receive certificates and may use these hours toward the required training hours for each practice group. Read More

May Membership Meeting and Dinner

Join DCACP for the presentation, Looking into The Future of the DC Collaborative Community: Where From Here? Presenters: Lisa Herrick PhD will facilitate a multi-disciplinary panel of our community members Periodically DCACP reflects on our evolution since 2006 when we founded our practice group. Recently, a few core members of our community either announced their coming retirement, or already sailed off into their next chapter. Meanwhile, fortunately, several younger, newish members have sunk roots into our community, have jumped into responsibilities and new cases, and are steadily morphing into being integral people in our practice group. Reflection on growth and development can provide us with opportunities to take pride in our accomplishments, and develop visions for our future. So this program will give us a time to do just that. This program will be more facilitated than taught and will encourage everyone who attends to speak up about their observations, hopes and ideas for the coming decade of DCACP. 5:45 - 6:30 -- Networking 6:30 - 7:45 -- Program and Dinner* *The program/dinner fee is $40. There will be a bar open where members can purchase drinks for an additional cost. Read More
