Submissions for clinical and research presentations are now open for the ISITDBT Conference on Thursday, October 27th, 2016 in New York, NY.  Please see for more information.

Submissions are due June 6th, 2016, and should be sent to

Clinical Workshops will be 90-105 minutes in length and should advance a participant’s knowledge of DBT. Both “broad spectrum DBT” and “niche DBT” workshops submissions will be accepted, although quality submissions will be the main variable used for workshop selection. Experiential components are encouraged for all workshops. Submissions should include a workshop title, list of presenters and affiliations, 3 learning objectives, and abstract. In addition, please specify whether material will be geared to one of three levels: basic (will be useful to all participants), novice (useful to individuals who are relatively new to DBT), or intermediate (requires a moderate degree of familiarity with DBT). Submissions should be no more than 1 page in length.

Research Presentations. As in previous years, we will have a research panel in which individuals will present new data on DBT and DBT-informed studies. Appropriate studies include: randomized clinical trials, pilot trials of an adaptation or novel use of DBT, or basic studies on DBT-relevant topics such as emotion regulation, borderline personality disorder, suicidal behavior, and/or team or therapist behaviors. Submissions should include a title, list of authors and affiliations, and an abstract and should not exceed one page in length.
