Dialectical Behavior Therapy [DBT]
Skills Group: Adults
Frequently used to treat the symptoms associated with Borderline Personality Disorder, clients in DBT can expect to be assigned therapeutic homework, role-play alternate ways of interacting with other people, and practice positive and adaptive coping skills such as distress tolerance, emotion regulation, mindfulness, radical acceptance, interpersonal effectiveness and other positive means of managing intense feelings or emotions when angry, depressed, anxious, or upset. These adaptive skills are an important component of DBT and are reviewed in weekly groups as the Group Facilitator helps clients to learn, apply and master DBT skills.
DBT helps clients recognize negative, faulty or erroneous thoughts, beliefs, and assumptions that make it difficult for people to function in life or in their relationships. DBT is extremely collaborative in that it requires an ongoing focus on relationships between the client and their therapist.
