WHAT IS DBT?

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) treatment is a type of psychotherapy that utilizes a cognitive-behavioral approach. With its emphasis on building skills and eliminating destructive behaviors, DBT is a highly practical and direct form of therapy focused on creating a life worth living. 

DBT TREATS:

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Creating & Maintaining Relationships

  • Resolving Past Trauma

  • Emotional Dysregulation

  • Rebounding From Grief & Loss

  • Increasing Family Harmony

  • Stoping Self-Harm

  • Bipolar Disorder 

  • Borderline Personality Disorder

 

"My clients have gained so much from taking DBT Skills Training Classes with the team at Village Counseling and Wellness! Once they started attending they found the skills to be life-changing. My therapy progresses more quickly and I can do deeper, more effective work with my clients as they learn to better regulate their emotions. My clients come in more regulated, less prone to the 'crisis of the week' and ready to do the real work of therapy.

Village is my favorite referral source!"

When you learn DBT skills, they become life-long tools you can use to help you navigate difficult situations, handle triggering events, and keep your emotions at bay when life gets tough.

Our online DBT skill classes will teach you all of the DBT skills over a six-month program, broken in 3 eight-week modules. Each module meets weekly for 8 weeks and is held on Zoom, which is a HIPAA-compliant online platform.

Online Class Topics Include:

Mindfulness

Emotional Regulation

Distress Tolerance

Interpersonal Effectiveness
