   What is DBT and who would benefit from it?


   DBT Skills are appropriate for many people, including those struggling with depression, anxiety, bi-polar, addiction,

   self-harming, borderline personality disorder or other mood disorders.

   Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a specific type of cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy developed in the late 1980s

   by psychologist Marsha M. Linehan. It is most commonly taught in a group setting.  Since its development, it has been

   used for the treatment of many kinds of mental health disorders. The theory behind DBT is that some people are prone

   to react in a more intense manner toward certain emotional situations, primarily those found in romantic, family and

   friend relationships. DBT theory suggests that some people’s distress levels in these types of situations can increase far

   more quickly than what is to be expected. It is also observed that these individuals attain a higher level of emotional

   stimulation and take much more time calm themselves following the emotion. DBT was developed to address these

   types of behaviors and to help restore peace to our lives.
