Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is a treatment intervention to help individuals with severe and chronic mental health disorders. This evidence based treatment was designed by Marsha Linehan, phd., in the early 90's. DBT is focused on reducing negative behaviors that cause misery and stress while increasing behaviors that lead to reaching a life worth living. This treatment consists of four core skills: Core Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Emotion Regulation, and Interpersonal Effectiveness. DBT is unique in the fact that it uses a treatment team approach combining individual therapy, group skills training and phone coaching. If you would like more information about DBT, please contact Kristen Kolberg, L.M.S.W. at 989-667-9661.
