What is Dialectical Behavior Therapy?

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) combines traditional Cognitive Behavioral Therapy methods with mindfulness and acceptance practices to treat emotional and behavioral problems and help people create a more meaningful and fulfilling life.

DBT teaches practical skills for clients to utilize in moments of crisis, difficult interpersonal situations, and problems of everyday living. Typically, individuals participating in dialectical behavior therapy feel more in control of their emotions and are less likely to let their emotions control them.

“Since finishing Awake DBT, life has gotten more stressful for me, but I have the tools and confidence in myself to get through them and am exponentially happier for it.” - D.H.
