Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a cognitive treatment developed by Marsha Linehan, PhD. It emphasizes individual psychotherapy and group skills training sessions to help people learn and use new strategies to cope with life and develop a life that they experience as worth living.

DBT is recognized as the gold standard in treatment for Borderline Personality Disorder and has also been proven to be effective for treating:

DBT focuses on helping clients build 4 sets of skills:
Mindfulness skills: Developing awareness of the present moment, reducing suffering and increasing happiness.
Distress Tolerance skills: Managing a crisis without making things worse, getting through a difficult moment.
Emotion Regulation skills: Understanding emotions and changing emotions to improve the way you feel.
