DBT (Dialectical Behaviour Therapy)
This 24 week program is designed for adults who have difficulties with emotions, relationships, impulsivity, self harm, suicidal behaviours, substance use or other problems that come from difficulties with controlling emotions.
The therapy consists of a variety of modes:
- Individual DBT treatment
- Telephone Coaching with you rindividual DBT therapist
- DBT Skills Group treatment
- Team Consultation meetings (practitioners only)
The skills group component covers four core modules:
- Distress Tolerance
- Emotion Regulation
- Interpersonal Effectiveness
It is not a traditional group therapy model but a very active learning process in which clients are expected to participate and also discuss how the skills apply to their real world situations. Telephone coaching and individual sessions complement what is being taught in skills group and provide support.
Recent research has consistently demonstrated the effectiveness of comprehensive DBT. Most of all it enables people with the skills required to thrive and connect with others.
The following clip is an explanation of DBT. While the video speaks of it's use with adolescents, it is used for adults in exactly the same way, to achieve significant changes.
