Clinicians who achieve certification are recognized as highly skilled professionals and experts in the application of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. Dr. Friedman, along with her colleagues at Therapeutic Oasis have been utilizing Dialectical Behavioral Therapy in alignment with the Linehan Institute for over 15 years. Gaining this certification required extensive training and many hours of hard work. Dr. Friedman has put her full effort and dedication into Therapeutic Oasis and the DBT Program.
According the DBT-Linehan Board of Certification, the goal of the certification process “is to provide to the public at large and also to relevant stakeholders a source that clearly identifies providers and programs that reliably offer DBT in a way that conforms to the evidence-based research. Clinicians can demonstrate that they have the requisite knowledge and skills to deliver DBT with adherence to the model as developed by Dr. Linehan and colleagues.”
