We provide DBT skills training for adults, teens, and parents in Charlotte, NC, GA, TX, PA, AL, VA, CO, UT, FL, and other PSYPACT states.
The UCSF DBT Program for Adolescents and Young Adults created an overview of Dialectical Behavior Therapy for families and adolescents.
DBT was originally developed to treat chronically suicidal individuals diagnosed with borderline personality disorder (BPD), and it is now recognized as the gold standard psychological treatment for this population. In addition, research has shown that it is effective in treating a wide range of other disorders such as substance dependence, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and eating disorders. Read more about the standard treatment approach for clinical disorders.
Skills training is one of four core components of DBT. As DBT has expanded beyond treatment for BPD, new sets of specialized skills have been developed for other disorders, including a module targeting emotion overcontrol, middle path skills developed originally for parents and adolescents but appropriate for many populations, skills for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, and a set of skills specifically designed for individuals with addictions. Even when adapting DBT for other disorders, a DBT therapist still looks to the standard treatment model and adapts it only when necessary.
We provide DBT to teens, adults, and parents. At this time, we do not offer a comprehensive DBT program, which includes: individual therapy, group skills training, and between-session phone coaching.
We do work closely with DBT group programs in Charlotte and serve as an individual therapist for clients in their groups.
