Dialectical Behaviour Therapy is based on the work of Marsha Linehan. It is a therapy modality that was designed to decrease unhealthy coping behaviours such as self-harm, suicidal thinking and substance abuse. In it’s purest form, DBT is an intensive long-term treatment that combines weekly therapy sessions with weekly skills training groups. There are, however, many elements of DBT that can be offered as a compliment to other therapies, such as CBT, and trauma therapy.
Our therapists can offer elements of this therapy to enhance other treatment modalities and to help you with regulating emotions.
