What is DBT? (Source

"Problematic behaviors evolve as a way to cope with a situation or attempt to solve a problem. While these behaviors might provide temporary relief, they often are not effective in the long-term. DBT assumes that clients are doing the best they can, AND they need to learn new behaviors in all relevant contexts.​

 The function of DBT Skills is to help enhance a client’s capabilities. There are four skills taught in DBT:​

  • Mindfulness: the practice of being fully aware and present in this one moment​

  • Distress Tolerance: how to tolerate pain in difficult situations, not change it​

  • Interpersonal Effectiveness: how to ask for what you want and say no while maintaining self-respect and relationships with others​

  • Emotion Regulation: how to change emotions that you want to change​
