DIALECTICAL BEHAVIOR THERAPY (DBT)
Initially developed to treat chronically suicidal individuals with borderline personality disorder, DBT has evolved to include treatment of individuals with multiple different disorders. Dialectical Behavioral Therapy has had excellent success in treating individuals who struggle with: substance abuse, mood disorders, depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), attention deficit – hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Specifically, DBT focuses on the patient’s relationship with others and how they interact with others. Emotional regulation (the behavior exhibited upon an emotional trigger) is key to this form of therapy.
What Skills are Taught in DBT?
DBT primarily focuses on four behavioral skill sets:
- Mindfulness: the practice of being fully aware and present in this one moment.
- Distress Tolerance: how to tolerate emotional discomfort in difficult situations, rather than attempt to change it, such as by using substances.
- Interpersonal Effectiveness: how to ask for what you want and say no while maintaining self-respect and positive, healthy relationships with others.
- Emotional Regulation: how to effectively manage and respond with a behavior to an emotional experience.
