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.

DBT maintains that some people (due to biological and environmental reasons) react in an unhealthy way to emotional stimulation. Their level of arousal goes up quickly, peaks at a high level, and takes long time to return to baseline. Because of their past invalidation, these people don’t have the skills necessary to manage with these sudden, intense emotions. DBT is set of skills that will help in this task.

DBT is a structure model that helps streamline decision making and build healthy skills. The DBT method integrates mindfulness, motivational techniques and range of emotional regulation as well as interpersonal skills in a customizable way that leads to healthy living.

DBT assume that successful psychotherapy must promote the following factors:

  • enhance and maintain the client’s motivation to change;
  • enhance the client’s capabilities;
  • ensure that the client’s new capabilities are generalized to all relevant environments;
  • enhance the therapist’s motivation to treat clients while also enhancing the therapist’s capabilities;
  • and, structure the environment so that treatment can take place.

Skills are acquired, strengthened, and generalized through the combination of individual psychotherapy, group work, homework assignments as well as coaching.
