On Giving Tuesday, Please Help Support the Competent Delivery of Effective DBT.

As we approach the end of 2014, the long awaited DBT Certification exam was recently taken by 104 therapists from all over the country….Since this is a pilot exam, it was paper and pencil (yes….the old number 2) with strict over-site to meet accreditation standards.  There were a handful of Therapists in Florida who took it and since it has to go back to the psychometricians to score,  the results won’t be in until early January at the latest.  This is very exciting.  The following request comes from the Linehan Board of Certification.  This process has been costly and has only been accomplished by the donations of many thus far.  The goal is to make this certification process financially  self sustaining but the legal and development costs were way beyond what was imagined.  Please give.

As many of you know there has been a group of hardworking volunteers developing a Linehan-approved certification process.  You are seeing the fruits of those labors in this website and the development of the certification process.  We need your participation too. How?  By making a significant financial contribution to the funding needs that can’t be handled by volunteers.  We have been fortunate to have donors who believe in this effort make contributions that have allowed us to progress this far.  Are you willing to add to their investment by making a tax-deductible contribution too?

Will you please send a generous gift today?  In order for your contribution to be tax deductible to you, your gift needs to be made to the Linehan Institute, a 501(c3) non-profit organization, and it will then be forwarded to the certification efforts of the DBT-LBC.

To make a donation go to www.linehaninstitute.org and select the “Give” tab and you will see the “Certification” link that will earmark your contribution to DBT-LBC.  We can’t tell you how much it would mean.
