Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a cognitive behavioral treatment that emphasizes individual psychotherapy as well as group skills training classes to help patients learn, or in some cases re-learn, and use new skills and strategies to better their lives personally and within a familial or community setting. DBT focuses on skills that include, but are not limited to, mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness all in an effort to decrease harmful behaviors and replace them with ones that continue to positively impact a patient’s life.

DBT therapy is now recognized as a gold standard in holistic psychological treatment for patients of all ages and has proven effective in helping to treat a wide range of disorders such as substance dependence, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and eating disorders.
