 Dialectical Behaviour Therapy

DBT is a modified version of CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) that was originally created to treat BPD (Borderline Personality Disorder).  DBT was adapted  to treat multiple other conditions such as those listed below.

DBT has mindfulness at its core, and utilises dialogue to discuss how contradictory or opposing views can both true, instead or arguing over a single truth.

DBT helps build distress tolerance providing strategies for dealing with adverse situations.  Interpersonal effectiveness which helps the individual to become more assertive in a relationship (for example, expressing your needs and be able to say "no"), and Emotion Regulation, which helps you navigate your emotions in a conducive way and reduce emotional vulnerability.
