Dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) is a form of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) that primarily helps people learn to regulate their emotions, develop healthy coping mechanisms, and recognize and deal with anxiety.

One of the core elements of DBT is learning mindfulness skills so that you remain present in the moment and not get overwhelmed with memories from your past or anxiety about the future. Dialectical behavioral therapy also helps you develop interpersonal skills so that you can assert your needs through healthy communication.

DBT was first developed to help people with borderline personality disorder, but DBT has been proven to be effective for mental health issues such as:

  • Eating disorders
  • Trauma and PTSD
  • Substance, Drug, or Alcohol use
  • Anxiety
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)

Wherever you are located in Georgia from Albany to Warner Robins or even Macon, or anywhere else nearby, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy Teaches Helpful Skills

DBT is one of many types of therapy. It teaches 4 main skills:

Equipped with these skills, you’ll be better able to handle negative situations and difficult emotions without resorting to unhealthy coping mechanisms. You’ll also be better able to form and maintain more fulfilling and meaningful relationships with others.
