Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a form of psychotherapy that was originally developed to treat individuals with borderline personality disorder (BPD), a condition characterized by intense emotional reactivity, unstable mood, and impulsive behavior. However, it has also been used to treat other conditions, such as substance abuse, eating disorders, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
DBT is a cognitive-behavioral therapy that combines elements of cognitive therapy, behavioral therapy, and mindfulness techniques. The therapy aims to help individuals develop new coping skills and strategies to manage intense emotions, regulate their mood, and improve their interpersonal relationships.
DBT has four primary components:
- Individual therapy.
- Group skills training
- Phone coaching
- Consultation team meetings.
In individual therapy, the therapist and client work together to identify problematic behaviors and develop strategies to replace them with healthier alternatives. In group skills training, clients learn skills such as mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness. Phone coaching allows clients to receive support and guidance outside of therapy sessions, and consultation team meetings help therapists remain consistent and effective in their treatment approach.
