Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a treatment designed specifically for individuals with self-harming behaviors or extreme difficulty regulating emotions such as anger or severe anxiety and depression. Self-harming behaviors might include self-cutting, suicidal thoughts, urges to commit suicide, and a history of suicide attempts.
DBT was originally created by Dr. Marsha Linehan as a method of treating Borderline Personality Disorder, but in recent decades it has been successfully used to treat a wide variety of disorders, including depression, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, eating disorders,process addiction problems (like gambling, eating disorders and sexual addictions) and substance abuse problems.
DBT has been extensively researched and has been demonstrated to be effective in treating a wide variety of mental disorders.
This online DBT skills group meets once per week using Skype. At each session we will review at least one skill of DBT. Participants will receive handouts in pdf format to be reviewed prior to each session.
