Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a type of behavior therapy that is designed for people who experience emotions very intensely. “Dialectical” means combining opposite ideas. DBT focuses on helping people accept the reality of their lives and their behaviors, as well as helping them learn to change their lives, including unhelpful behaviors.

Below are skills modules that will teach you how to better enhance your capabilities in day-to-day life. Additional modules for each skill set are available once you access the linked videos.
