Specifications include, but are not limited to: Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) has been established as an empirically validated treatment for Borderline Personality Disorder and self-injurious behavior. More recent data suggests that it also offers effective treatment for a variety of other problem behavior such as eating disorders, substance abuse and interpersonal violence. DBT is effective in both inpatient and outpatient settings, and its use in forensic settings is becoming more wide-spread. The effectiveness of DBT however is related to strong fidelity to the DBT module as DBT skills alone are not effective in ameliorating problem behaviors. Research also supports that implementation of a DBT program results in reduction of problem behaviors and produces significant cost savings to institutions. DSH has a history of training staff on DBT, however this training did not include implementation issues, and the training was not consistently effective. The focus of this RFP is to include assessment of the institution, implementation issues, and training of specific staff on DBT. The training will focus on both clinical core training and nursing staff training because past training efforts did not pay enough attention to nursing staff training. There are currently pilot programs in place which include all of the elements listed above and have shown success in decreasing problematic behavior. The intent of the RFP is a two (2) year contract with twelve (12) months dedicated to a single facility with a needs assessment that includes implementation issues leading to full implementation of DBT at the end of the twelve (12) month period.
