Screen Shot 2014-10-29 at 9.05.31 AMDBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) is a program designed to create a life worth living for those who have lost hope and find themselves participating in desperate and often dangerous behaviors. DBT creates quick structure around acute situations and a safe environment for those who may not be as severe but who find themselves needing help.

DBT utilizes four core modules of skills training:

  • Mindfulness
  • Emotion Regulation
  • Distress Tolerance
  • Interpersonal Effectiveness

DBT utilizes three key aspects in order for the therapist to be as effective as possible:

  • One-on-One Therapy Appointments
  • Skills Training Classes
  • Phone Consultation (for behavior avoidance)

Clients needs and diagnoses cover a wide range of issues. Clients utilize DBT to develop a life worth living, to reduce and extinguish harmful behaviors, to avoid hospitalizations, to develop more effective ways to interact with their environments, and to learn to deal more effectively with overwhelming feelings.
