Currently Accepting Applications

The DBT Center at the Evidence Based Treatment Centers of Seattle (EBTCS) invites applications for a post-doctoral fellowship! We have been providing comprehensive outpatient DBT to teens and adults since 2002 and started providing intensive outpatient (IOP) services in 2018. We were one of the first programs in the country to have our program certified by the Linehan Board of Certification. Fellows will provide individual DBT and skills training for adults, adolescents, and families, and may also have opportunities to work with clients in our IOP programs. Fellows will also serve as members of a DBT team and receive specialized training and supervision in DBT and a variety of evidence-based treatments for clients with multiple, chronic problems related to emotion dysregulation. Activities may also include participating in program development and administration, assisting with our client outcomes monitoring program, and participating in our practice-based research program. Trainees will work closely with our Director, Jennifer Sayrs, Ph.D., ABPP.

All positions start in Fall 2021. The starting salary is $52,000/year, and once you are licensed this increases to $60,000/year. Although the position requires a 2-year commitment, there is an opportunity in the second year for promotion to a training staff-level position if the fellow has demonstrated meeting program-specific competencies. This position includes 1 hour of individual supervision per week and an increase in guaranteed base pay to $90,000/year. Most fellows at EBTCS over the last 5 years have been hired into a training staff-level position at the start of their second year.

The DBT Center is part of the Evidence Based Treatment Centers of Seattle (EBTCS), a nationally-recognized specialty clinic in the heart of downtown Seattle. EBTCS is home to four specialty clinics, including the DBT Center, the Anxiety Center, the Child Anxiety Center, and the Eating Disorders Center.
