DIALECTIAL BEHAVIOUR THERAPY (DBT)
What is DBT?
Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), developed by Marsha Linehan PhD at the University of Washington, is a type of psychotherapy that focuses on behavioural change for individuals with extreme emotions and distress. The “D” means “dialectical.” A dialectic is a synthesis or integration of opposites. In DBT, dialectical strategies help both the therapist and the client get unstuck from extreme positions. Dialectical strategies keep the therapy in balance and help clients reach their ultimate goals as quickly as possible. The “B” stands for “behavioural.” DBT requires a behavioural approach. This means that we assess the situations and target behaviours that are relevant to our clients’ goals in order to figure out how to solve the problems in their lives. The “T” stands for “therapy” which DBT is.
Our Facilitators are Comprehensively DBT Trained and Credentialed to Australian Health Professional Standards
DBT programs are validated by independent research
DBT group programs have been developed for individuals with maladaptive under-control and/or emotion dysregulation difficulties
