What is DBT?

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a form of talk therapy that was originally created for indviduals with personality disorders and severe suicidality. DBT draws many components from cognitive behavioral therapy. "Dialectical" means the possibility that two seemingly opposite ideas may coexist together. DBT can help you accept the reality of life, while also helping you learn tangible skills to change behaviors and thinking.
