Dialectical Behavior Therapy Programs and ClassesPosted by: Damon Webster | Posted on: October 21, 2021
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), a two-weekly program for people with difficulties in controlling emotions, such as those diagnosed with traits of borderline personality disorder (BPD). The program involves weekly individual therapy as well as a skills class. Participation in the program is not restricted by any specific diagnosis. Patients can participate in online DBT skills classes as well.
DBT may be the right option for you if intense emotions, unmanageable stress, or problematic behaviors hinder your ability to be a productive human being. This could be in the context of professional or personal relationships. DBT can help you cope with extreme emotions, self-harm, mood swings, and ADHD. It also helps you to manage anger, depression, anxiety, impulsivity, and eating disorders.
What is Dialectical Behavior Therapy?
Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), one of the most popular treatments for people who have difficulty regulating their emotions, is also one of the most studied. Dr. Marsha Linehan originally created it for individuals with self-harming tendencies who meet the criteria for borderline personality disorder (BPD).
DBT is a team-based program that includes weekly individual therapy, a skills class, phone skills coaching, and DBT team consultation*. Clients who cannot commit to the weekly skills class can still attend them without a one-on-one session subject to an assessment or a referral letter.
