What is Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)?

Dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) is a type of talking therapy which was originally developed by an American psychologist named Marsha Linehan. Dialectical behavioral therapy is most helpful for people who struggle with difficulties in managing their emotions.

Dialectical behavioral therapy normally involves a weekly individual therapy session and a weekly group therapy session that involves learning important new skills in the areas of managing your attention, managing & coping with your emotions, dealing effectively with interpersonal situations, and tolerating emotional distress.

Our Skills Group for Delray Beach DBT 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 dialectical behavioral therapy sessions.
