Dialiectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) combines multiple methodologies, mainly Cognitive Therapy and Behavioral Therapy as well various mindfulness practices and Eastern techniques. DBT is drawn from Zen Buddhism/mindful techniques that lead to acceptance and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy that lead to change. The main goal of DBT is to manage stress and build a better quality of life, through the acquisition of new views and adapt healthy cognitive and behaviors skills.
