Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Skills Videos
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, or DBT, is an empirically supported therapy. DBT is influenced by the philosophical perspective of dialectics, which means two things can seem opposite or can both be true and coexist at the same time. In DBT the core is to build acceptance and change together so there are sets of acceptance skills as well as change skills. Skills are further divided into four skill modules. These modules are mindfulness, emotional regulation, interpersonal effectiveness, and distress tolerance. It's our hope that in teaching you DBT skills you will be able to live in the moment, develop healthy ways to cope with stress, manage your emotions, and improve your relationship with others.
