What is Dialectical Behavior Therapy?
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a cutting-edge treatment approach designed to help those who struggle with emotion regulation and impulsivity. First and foremost, DBT emphasizes a balance between validation and change that allows for our clients to feel safe while simultaneously growing in a way that is aligned with their goals and values.
DBT helps our children, teens, and adult develop the coping skills they need to solve their own problems and achieve their desired goals. DBT focuses on helping people accept the reality of their lives and their behaviors, as well as helping them learn to change their lives, including their unhelpful behaviors.
DBT is particularly helpful for those that struggle with managing their emotions and behaviors. This is because DBT teaches individuals how to cope with their emotions in a way that is better aligned with their goals and values.
