One component of dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) is a consultation team composed of peer therapists. The role of the consultation team is to assist in the therapeutic process by providing feedback and support to therapists. As a DBT component, the consultation team meets weekly. Our experience, and that of the research, indicates that therapists who participate in consultation team show higher level of adherence to DBT than those who seldom met with a team. Our weekly meetings provide advice, share ideas and discuss ways to cope with difficult clients. Evidence also indicates that participation in a consultation team reduces the likelihood of burnout.
