Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is an evidenced-based form of cognitive behavioral therapy which often integrates mindfulness and emotional regulation techniques. DBT has been proven highly effective in helping people develop healthy coping skills, learn ways to manage strong emotions, and improve their relationships with others.

As a result of this training, participants will:

  • Understand key principles and core components of DBT, including mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance and interpersonal effectiveness.
  • Recognize the applicability of DBT in managing and treating mental health conditions such as Borderline Personality Disorder, substance use disorders, self-harm behaviors and suicidal ideation.
  • Learn practical skills and strategies from DBT that can be applied in daily life to enhance emotional well being, improve interpersonal relationships and cope with distressing situations effectively.
