DBT Master Class – R.U.S.H. Program

Australian DBT Institute is inviting all interested to attend our FREE online Master Class Session via Zoom this Thursday evening!

About the R.U.S.H. Program
The RUSH program is an Australian intervention designed to target vulnerable offenders. It incorporates adapted versions of MarshaLinehan’sDialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) skills training modules to target individuals exhibiting suicide, self-harming, and borderline personality characteristics and maladaptive behaviours.

Preliminary evaluations have also been conducted on the program, resulting in various publications on the positive outcomes of this program for an offender population. The program has been implemented across Victorian, New South Wales, Queensland and Australian Capital Territory correctional environments, however, the skills taught in RUSH are not offender specific and can also be designed to meet the client needs of a particular organisation.

About our Guest Speaker: Dr. Laura Sorbello is a forensic psychologist and organisational consultant who has a strong clinical practice & a diversity of management, operational and corporate experience and skills. Laura is the developer of the RUSH Program and owner of Myndscape Consulting.

Laura has completed the Doctorate in Forensic Psychology at the University of Melbourne as well as additional subjects that fulfil the requirements of a Masters in Clinical Psychology. Throughout her 15+ years working in the health services industry, Laura has worked as a clinician, senior manager and executive manager across a number of government and private organisations, predominantly in the forensic and drug and alcohol sector.

In particular, Laura has worked on a range of complex projects with strategic implications primarily associated with the provision of programs and services for offenders. Some of the projects include Violence Risk Scale (VRS) training and implementation, and the development, management, implementation and quality assurance of various offender rehabilitation programs, such as the Victorian Violence Intervention Program and particularly the RUSH (Real Understanding of Self-Help) Program, a forensic adaptation of Linehan’s Dialectical Behaviour Therapy.
