It is also used wide spread all over the world and one of the most effective types of behavioral therapy. Adaptations of DBT for the treatment of Addiction and Eating Disorders have also demonstrated positive results.
Our Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
Our DBT Skills Group has helped clients learn and apply skills that decrease both emotional deregulation and maladaptive reactions to difficult emotions. BY analysis and attention to detail we efficiently diagnosis and treat disorders. This group is a highly structured, and clients are required to make a full commitment to the entire course of therapy sessions.
Members of the DBT Skills Group receive training to master four skill sets:
Mindfulness Skills- Group participants are taught how to observe, describe and then participate in emotions, sensations, thoughts, and external phenomenon. This is done without passing judgment on these experiences as neither “good” nor “bad.” Mindfulness training is essential to develop skills that are necessary for successful progression in the DBT Program.
Interpersonal Effectiveness Skills- Members are taught how to more successfully express and assert their needs and resolve conflicts in their personal relationships. They learn how to process their thoughts in order to address the person with a confident and fair view.
Emotion Regulation Skills-Emotional regulation skills allow participants to identify and modulate their emotional reactions in healthier and more adaptive ways.
Distress Tolerance Skills-Participants are taught skills that enable them to accept and endure distress without having to resort to self-destructive and maladaptive behaviors.
