Abstract and Keywords

DBT team is one of the essential modes of comprehensive DBT and focuses on improving and maintaining the motivation and capability of DBT providers. This chapter provides an overview of DBT team, including descriptions of core differences between a traditional team and a DBT team (e.g., therapy for the therapist, dialectics). It describes team agreements and structure, including the team agenda and elements of effective team meetings. It reviews DBT team roles (e.g., team leader, meeting leader) and how they may improve team functioning; this chapter also describes how to manage team difficulties using DBT principles and strategies, and provides several examples. While the ideas presented here have worked for many teams, they should not be considered rules; creating the structure and solutions unique to one’s own team, based on DBTs principles, will maximize the chances of a healthy, effectively run DBT team.

Keywords: DBT team agreements, DBT team roles, therapy for the therapist, dialectics, DBT team agenda, observer, team leader, notetaker
