Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Program

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) treatment is a cognitive-behavioral approach that emphasizes the psychosocial aspects of treatment. The theory behind the approach is that some people are prone to react in a more intense and out-of-the-ordinary manner toward certain emotional situations. They don’t have any methods for coping with these sudden, intense surges of emotion. DBT is a method for teaching skills that will help in this task.

Adult Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT): A co-educational group for adults (age 18 and older) who have difficulty regulating their emotions, causing reactive and often self-destructive behavior in their personal and professional lives. Participants learn the skills necessary to tolerate and regulate negative emotions.

Teen Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT): A co-educational group for teens/adolescents (age 12-17) who have difficulty regulating their emotions. These struggles can lead to self-destructive patterns in relationships, school, and work life. Participants learn the skills necessary to tolerate and regulate negative emotions.
