What is DBT?

DBT means Dialectical Behavior Therapy, which could also be referred to as becoming more open minded. A dialectic is a dialogue between opposites. Dialectical therapy seeks the ability to tolerate opposites and to see truth in more than one perspective. DBT is an offshoot of CBT, or Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. This branch of psychology is aimed at helping you understand your thinking and behavior choices so they are more effective for your life and happiness.

Mindfulness is balancing emotion mind and wise mind.Distress Tolerance is when you have a problem you cannot solve, but you don't want to make it worse.Emotion Regulation is having less negative emotions and vulnerability, and more positive emotional experiences.Interpersonal Effectiveness is asking for what you want and saying no effectively.

DBT Hierarchy

The DBT hierarch y:
1. Decreasing suicidal and self-harm behaviour
2. Decreasing behaviours that undermine or interfere with therapy
3. Decreasing behaviours which interfere with your quality-of-life; often behaviour which lead to crisis
4. Increasing other required skills
5. Decreasing post-traumatic stress
6. Increasing respect for self
7. Achieving other individual goals

Safety is always at the top of the hierarchy – you must work to stay safe (and alive) to benefit from therapy.

You may also have the opportunity to develop a DBT crisis plan to specify how Crisis services can be st help you to cope with crisis.
