Dialectical Behavioral Therapy

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy or DBT was developed by Marsha Linehan. DBT consist of skills training for the client. These skills include Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Emotion Regulation, and Interpersonal Effectiveness Training. When practicing individual DBT, the client and therapist will work together discussing issues that may have come up for the client during the week and  identifying behaviors that may be harmful or maladaptive for the client. Next the client will learn to work on managing thoughts and behaviors using DBT skills. For more information visit Behavioral Tech, LLC.
