Dialectical Behavioral Therapy

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy is a skills-based curriculum that focuses on
four main skill groups:


Paying attention on purpose

Emotion Regulation:

Managing one’s emotions instead of allowing emotions to manage the person

Distress Tolerance:

Strengthening resilience and capacities to cope through challenges

Interpersonal Effectiveness:

Learning how to ask for what we need or say no without losing relationships

While originally developed and researched within populations struggling with Borderline Personality Disorder, DBT skills can help just about anyone feel they have the tools to cope and feel better about their lives.
