DBT is a cognitive behavioral treatment developed by Dr. Marsha Linehan in the last 1980’s. It was specifically designed for those who experience intense negative emotions, difficulty regulating their moods, often experience difficulty in relationships, and intense conflict within those relationships. DBT treatment typically consists of individual therapy sessions and DBT skills groups. Individual therapy sessions consist of one-on-one contact with a trained therapist, ensuring that all therapeutic needs are being addressed. The individual therapist will help the patient stay motivated, apply the DBT skills within daily life, and address obstacles that might arise over the course of treatment..
