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

"Mindfulness as a practice is thousands of years old. In fact it exists in every single religious and spiritual tradition that I have ever heard of. Both western and eastern spiritual tradition - it just goes by different names. Now, what's interesting about it is and what is interesting to me also a scientist, is that although that's the spiritual tradition, and mindfulness has been there for years, what's been happening over the last, I don't know, ten years or so, maybe fifteen, there's been an emerging tradition in western science that's been looking at the very same practice. "
