Here's what others have to say
about Lane Pederson's Dialectical Behavior Therapy trainings:
After 40 years of doing therapy, I've moved into the possibility of operating from a conscious competence level of practice informed by flexible, generously shared, mutually reinforcing models. Spending a day last week with Lane at the 2015 Psychotherapy Networker Symposium was a gift. His knowledge, skill, integrity, humility, and generosity are so real and available, I want to learn all I can. My body may be older than Lane's, but I still want to be like him when I grow up. I look forward to giving my best, and receiving all I am able to from you.

I learned a lot & the information was helpful as we went over the DBT stages, application of skills, nature and importance of the structure of this therapy, as well as Lane's expertise & evidence-based support of therapy. Watching Lane conduct DBT sessions was very helpful too.
- Counselor (Denver, CO)
I appreciate that Lane doesn't try to convince me that his style of therapy is the only good therapy. Hands down the most helpful seminar I have attended to this point!
