Portland DBT Institute
Presenter: Amy Kalasunas, LPCC-S, NCC

This three-day workshop will focus on presenting evidenced based theory and practices to diagnose and treat eating disorder symptoms in clients. Assessment and treatment strategies from Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy will be taught so that a clinician can best assess the appropriate treatment modality, the ideal level of care, and appropriate level of clinician expertise needed to treat a client presenting for eating disorder treatment.

Selected testimonials

  • Amy’s teaching style is incredibly helpful. She’s on point with enough space for deviation that it feels safe to ask more questions.

  • Thank you thank you thank you! This was such a great training. Amy is incredibly skilled, knowledgeable, and engaging. She made me go from being afraid to work with folks with ED to wanting to ask for a new client with ED. I have a lot to learn still (obviously), but I feel more knowledgeable and empowered to ask questions

  • I enjoyed watching the chain analysis with a group participant – it was helpful to watch and see how Amy nimbly jumps between areas and keeps the client engaged.
