What is DBT? Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is typically recommended for individuals who have difficulty with one or more of the following issues: labile mood, managing intense emotions, engaging in destructive or impulsive behaviors (i.e., self-injury, suicide attempts, etc), demonstrating “all-or-nothing” thinking, and/or unstable interpersonal relationships.
In DBT skills group, four modules are taught:
- Mindfulness: Learning to give attention to the present moment
- Emotion regulation: Learning how to manage emotions
- Interpersonal effectiveness: Learning strategies for healthy relationships
- Distress tolerance: Teaches skills to help clients deal with emotional crises
DBT strives to help adolescents and their families develop a balance between acceptance and change—that is, validating emotions and experiences as legitimate while also teaching new behavior patterns that contribute to a healthier way of life.
