Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, or DBT Therapy, is a form of therapy that helps people understand their difficult feelings, accept and embrace who they are and develops practical skills to help improve mental health.
DBT Therapy is an extension of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). While the two share an origin, they are distinctly different. Dialectical Behavior Therapy empowers – at its core is the principle that we are all unique, and that by embracing our imperfections we can approach change from a wholesome and balanced perspective. It helps deliver deeper, more meaningful relationships by promoting skills that allow us to remain mindful and be present, benefiting ourselves and those closest to us.
At Campus DBT, we’ve developed unique dialectical behavioral therapy programs and coaching sessions designed specifically for college students. These include individual and skills-based sessions, as well as phone support to ensure that you can make good decisions in the moment.
Like many forms of therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy doesn’t fit easily into a box.
It doesn’t fit a simple definition. Neither do you.
This is one of the key factors that makes DBT Therapy so powerful – through its embrace of individuality it is easily molded to anyone, making it one of the most practical forms of therapy to help improve mental health.
The skills developed when undertaking Dialectical Behavior Therapy don’t wear off over time. It’s not fake tan, it’s a gateway to self-development that promotes self-understanding as the launchpad to creating positive change. It delivers improved outcomes in every aspect of your life by assisting you to know yourself better – why you feel the way you do, why you approach circumstances in certain ways and what drives your actions. Through understanding, and acceptance, DBT Therapy helps you tackle life’s challenges with confidence.
DBT Therapy programs come in many forms. Deciding which one is right for you can be difficult. Many are built to be delivered at scale, allowing as many people to benefit as possible while also making it easier for a therapist to manage their own schedule.
