Mental Health Cognitive Dialectical Behavioral Therapy in Hollywood, FL

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a variation of evidence-based cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). It focuses on teaching people to be mindful and live in the given moment. The primary goal of DBT is to develop healthy ways to deal with stress, regulate emotions, and reduce conflict. Compared to CBT, DBT places more emphasis on managing emotions and building healthy relationships.


How DBT Works

DBT is often used in a variety of settings such as individual therapy, group therapy, and phone coaching. It revolves around four key areas, which include mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, distress tolerance, and emotional regulation. Mindfulness refers to the ability to be present in the moment. 

Interpersonal effectiveness centers around intentional communication with mutual respect that limits conflicts and promotes stronger relationships. Distress tolerance relates to improving resiliency and processing distress in a more effective way. Emotional regulation breaks the cycles of negative thinking and self-talk. 

In DBT, therapists will offer validation to increase the chance of cooperation and positive change. They may validate that your actions make sense without agreeing that they’re the best way to resolve an issue.

Benefits of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy

DBT can teach you strategies to accept and cope with your circumstances and emotions. You may also develop skills that enable you to make positive changes in your life.

In addition, it can encourage you to slow down and focus on what you need to do to care for yourself in the moment rather than focusing on what may come in the future. DBT goes beyond your mental health and can help you with many aspects of your personal and professional life.
