I attended Dr. Reutter’s 2-Day DBT workshop in Manhattan and found it to be the most informative workshop I have ever been to! His vast knowledge on the topic was inspiring. I found his presentation to be ideal; organized, intriguing, instructive, and fun! I highly recommend attending one of his seminars in the future—you will not be disappointed.

This was my first DBT training that I attended and I felt that I learned so much! The training was thorough and kept me engaged the entire time. Kirby does a great job presenting the material to those of all DBT experience levels, including beginners like me. This was one of my favorite trainings I have attended so far!

This is one the best trainings I have been to, and I have been in the field since 1977.
