Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an evidence-based model of therapy that helps people learn and use new skills and strategies so that they build lives they feel are worth living.
DBT is based on core mindfulness skills and dialectics which lean toward acceptance and change.
Components of DBT Skills Modules (each module-6 wks. in duration):
- Interpersonal Effectiveness: teaches skills for building and maintaining healthy relationships
- Distress Tolerance: how to tolerate pain in difficult situations, not change it
- Emotion Regulation: strategies for balancing emotions, changing them, and enhancing resilience
