Dialectical Behaviour Therapy

What is Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)?

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) is a proven psychotherapy approach that helps individuals build skills to manage difficult emotions, improve relationships, and create a life worth living.

Originally developed by psychologist Marsha M. Linehan as a treatment for individuals with borderline personality disorder (BPD), DBT has since been adapted to address a wide range of other mental health challenges, including depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), eating disorders, substance abuse, bipolar disorder, self-harming behaviour (including suicidal thoughts or tendencies), impulsivity, difficulties in interpersonal relationships and anger management.

At Camino Recovery, we offer DBT as a part of our comprehensive mental health services to support individuals on their journey towards emotional well-being.

How Does Dialectical Behaviour Therapy Work?

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy works by combining cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) techniques with principles of acceptance and mindfulness. These help individuals to develop effective coping strategies for the challenges they face.

DBT is typically conducted through individual therapy sessions, skills training groups, phone coaching and consultations with a focus on developing four key skills:

  1. Mindfulness
  2. Distress tolerance
  3. Emotion regulation
  4. Interpersonal effectiveness
