Are you seeking a powerful therapeutic approach that can help you effectively manage overwhelming emotions, develop healthy coping skills, and improve your relationships? Look no further than Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). At A Place to Turn, we specialize in providing DBT, offering a supportive environment where you can embark on a journey of healing and personal growth.

What is Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)?

DBT is a highly effective therapeutic approach that combines elements of cognitive-behavioral therapy with mindfulness practices. Originally developed to treat individuals with borderline personality disorder, DBT has proven to be beneficial for a wide range of mental health challenges, including depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and self-destructive behaviors.

How Does DBT Help?

  1. Emotion Regulation: DBT equips you with practical strategies to identify and regulate your emotions. Through skill-building exercises, you will learn healthy ways to manage intense emotions, reduce impulsivity, and make more balanced decisions.
  2. Distress Tolerance: Life is filled with challenges and stressors. DBT teaches you how to tolerate distressing situations without resorting to harmful behaviors. You will develop effective coping mechanisms to navigate crises and maintain emotional stability.
  3. Interpersonal Effectiveness: Relationships play a significant role in our lives, and DBT focuses on enhancing your communication and interpersonal skills. You will learn to set boundaries, express your needs assertively, and build healthier relationships based on respect and empathy.
  4. Mindfulness Practice: DBT incorporates mindfulness techniques to help you cultivate present-moment awareness and non-judgmental acceptance. By developing mindfulness skills, you can reduce emotional reactivity, increase self-awareness, and find inner peace.
