Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a modified version of CBT which encourages a client to focus on self-acceptance. Instead of only focusing on what needs to be “fixed,” The term dialectics refers to the goal of establishing an acceptance of harmful thoughts/ behaviors while also promoting positive change. Positive change is encouraged through educating the client on mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotional regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness. Homework, including diary cards to monitor thoughts and use of skills, is typically used. DBT has been proven to be an effective treatment for individuals with Borderline Personality Disorder, self harm behavior, Bipolar Disorder, Substance Use Disorder, and other mental health disorders.
