Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, DBT, was developed by Dr. Marsha Linehan. Her groundbreaking work has helped thousands of patients, many of whom were formerly considered difficult to treat.
The Solution Center has adapted the work of Dr. Linehan to use DBT techniques to treat individuals and improve skills useful in regulating emotions. These skills will help adults and adolescents manage difficult emotional experiences, substitute maladaptive behaviors, and develop a more mindful approach to their lives through caring and effective psychotherapy.
DBT has been shown to be very effective in treating depression, anxiety, self injury/harm and eating disorders. The Solution Center therapists offer a 10 week program teaching individual psychotherapy and DBT skills training. This program is designed for the adolescent having difficulty with self injury, emotional regulation, anxiety and/or depression.
DBT teaches the adolescent effective coping skills that overtime can replace self injury and other maladaptive behaviors. In addition, phone coaching is available to our DBT clients.
