Some people are prone to react in a more intense and out-of-the-ordinary manner toward certain emotional situations, primarily those found in romantic, family and friend relationships. Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) treatment is a type of psychotherapy — or talk therapy — that utilizes a cognitive-behavioral approach. Join us for the first in the series of five, to learn more about DBT skills, focusing on Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Emotion Regulation, and Interpersonal Effectiveness.
