WHAT IS DBT?

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy is an evidence-based practice that consists of four distinct modes of treatment: individual therapy, skills coaching, skills group, and team consultation.

Full DBT requires the incorporation of all four modes of treatment described in this section; anything not meeting this standard is referred to as “DBT Informed”.
