Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

What is DBT?

DBT is an evidence-based form of psychotherapy that began in the late 1980s with efforts to treat borderline personality disorder. DBT has been proven useful in treating several conditions, including mood disorders, suicidal ideation, and for change in behavioral patterns such as self-harm, and substance abuse.


DBT emphasizes the psychosocial aspects of treatment, and it provides clients with tools to manage painful emotions and decrease conflict in relationships. DBT aims to provide skills in four key aspects: mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness.
