I don't think termination is a consequence of an attempt in DBT. You are supposed to have some sort of access to contact your t in emergency situations. Not necessarily 24/7 but some kind of reasonable access that is worked out before hand.

If you are feeling like attempting or other forms of SI then you are supposed to contact your t or emergency services or whatever.

There is a 24 hour rule. Or maybe it is even 72 I can't quite remember.

If you SI or attempt you aren't supposed to contact your t for that ammount of time after the attempt. That is the consequence. Not termination. DBT is about treating / working with people who recurrently SI / attempt. That is part of the problem for them. To terminate them because of their problem isnt the solution. I haven't heard of termination as a consequence there - unless the client refuses to work on ceasing their attempts / SI. That would be grounds for termination.
