What is DBT?

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) focuses on teaching skills that help people regulate their emotions, manage acute distress without self-destructive behaviors, and cope more effectively in their interpersonal relationships.  Originally created for people who engage in self-harm behaviors, DBT has been shown to be helpful for treatment of depression, eating disorders, substance abuse and PTSD, among other problems.

Many of our therapists incorporate DBT principles and techniques in their individual therapy.  We also offer the Regulation Emotions Distress and Interpersonal Relationships (REDI) Group, which teaches many of the core DBT skills.  For some patients a full scale DBT program that includes coordinated individual and group therapy is most appropriate.  In those cases we can provide referrals to DBT programs outside of our practice.
