Program Description
DBT uses cognitive-behavioral strategies for problem-solving augmented with mindfulness practices to reduce suffering, and dialectical approaches to address tension, opposition, and impasse

Developed more than thirty years ago, DBT was originally intended to help individuals with suicide attempts and self-harm behaviors build lives worth living. The treatment has evolved and is now used to treat individuals with a wide variety of disorders that involve emotional dysregulation.
