We are pleased to acknowledge that Adam Payne, Ph.D., is part of the first wave of clinicians to achieve recognition as a Linehan Board of Certification, Certified DBT Clinician. The Linehan Certification process is the sole certification in DBT that is endorsed by Marsha Linehan, Ph.D., ABPP, the treatment developer of DBT.  Dr. Payne’s certification was first announced at the 2015 International Society for the Improvement and Teaching of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (ISITDBT) conference in Chicago, IL, on November 12, 2015. This certification means that Dr. Payne has demonstrated fidelity to the DBT model and is accepted by the certification board to demonstrate expertise in Dialectical Behavior Therapy. We are glad to have Dr. Payne as a central member of the Dialectical Behavior Therapy programs for Adults and for Families at CCDBT.
