Dialectical Behavior Group Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a form of cognitive-behavioral therapy designed to help people regulate emotions and tolerate upsetting situations more skillfully. DBT balances the use of change techniques from cognitive-behavior therapy with acceptance strategies from the Zen mindfulness tradition. DBT groups meet for one hour weekly and 4 skills modules are taught: core mindfulness skills, distress tolerance skills, emotion regulation skills and interpersonal effectiveness skills. Group members learn to more effectively tolerate feelings of sorrow, anger and anxiety, enhance communication skills to foster healthier relationships, increase feelings of joy, and develop a greater sense of self-acceptance.
