Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is a form of cognitive behavioral therapy designed to help you change patterns of behavior that can lead to depression, irritability, anxiety, self-harming behavior, suicidal thinking, and substance abuse.
DBT can help you increase your emotional and cognitive regulation by learning about the triggers that lead to reactive states. DBT can also help you assess which coping skills to apply in sequences of events, thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, which helps you avoid reactive states that lead to undesired responses. DBT skills are exceptionally helpful whether the symptoms are mild or severe.
Purpose of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy is designed to carefully and thoughtfully create a balance between acceptance and change, and to help you live a richer, fuller life through mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotional regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness.
