Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) has been proven useful in treating mood disorders, suicidal ideation, and for change in behavioral patterns such as binge-eating, self-harm, and substance abuse.
DBT is a process where the therapist and client work with acceptance and change-oriented strategies. This approach is designed to help you increase emotional and cognitive regulation by learning about the triggers that lead to a reactive response. DBT helps to assess which coping skills to use in order to avoid undesired reactions. Mindfulness is the practice of relying on your ability to view situations with no judgment, and to accept situations and accompanying emotions and is one of the core ideas behind all elements of DBT.
