Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an evidence based treatment that is helpful for individuals struggling with unhealthy patterns of behavior, difficulty managing emotions, tolerating distress, and/or successfully engaging in relationships. Studies show that this treatment modality is helpful for numerous presenting issues. It's especially helpful for Borderline Personality Disorder and individuals who engage in self-destructive thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Click here to learn more about DBT.
In DBT, clients will learn coping skills to better manage emotional turmoil and change behavior. DBT skills training is especially helpful to teach individuals how to tolerate distressing moments without engaging in problematic behaviors that simply make a bad situation worse. Specific skill sets are dedicated to improving relationships, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and mindfulness.
In our practice, our therapists are DBT informed. What’s the difference between us and a fully adherent program?
