What is DBT?
DBT stands for Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. Developed by Marsha Linehan, Ph.D and modified for adolescents, DBT Skills Training teaches life-long skills that can lead to an improved ability to cope with stress, better communication skills, greater acceptance of oneself and others, and healthier approaches to dealing with strong emotions.
