Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

 

This psychotherapy group is centered towards women of all ages. 18 on up.  

 

People who are diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder can experience extreme swings in emotions, see the world in black-and-white shades, and seem to always be jumping from one crisis to another. Because few people understand such reactions — most of all their own family and a childhood that emphasized invalidation — they need methods for coping with these sudden, intense surges of emotion. Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) group can help! In this group you will learn: interpersonal effectiveness, distress tolerance/reality acceptance skills, emotion regulation, and mindfulness skills.

Benefits of DBT group:

* Support-oriented: It helps a person identify their strengths and builds on them so that the person can feel better about him/herself and their life.
* Cognitive-based: DBT helps identify thoughts, beliefs, and assumptions that make life harder: “I have to be perfect at everything.” “If I get angry, I’m a terrible person” and helps people to learn different ways of thinking that will make life more bearable: “I don’t need to be perfect at things for people to care about me”, “Everyone gets angry, it’s a normal emotion.

* Collaborative: It requires constant attention to relationships between client and therapist. In DBT people are encouraged to work out problems in their relationships with their therapist and the therapist does the same with them. DBT asks people to complete homework assignments, to role-play new ways of interacting with others, and to practice skills such as soothing yourself when
upset. These skills, a crucial part of DBT, are taught in weekly lectures, reviewed in weekly homework groups, and referred to in nearly every group. The individual therapist helps the person to learn, apply and master the DBT skills.
