DBT stands for Dialectical Behavior Therapy. It has proven to be effective in transforming negative thinking patterns and destructive behaviors.
The intent is to help people who experience problems with anger or the expression of anger, episodic depression, irritability or anxiety, intense or chaotic relationships, impulsivity, stress and feelings of emptiness. DBT assists participants in regulating emotions, tolerating stress, and improving relationships. At ARTrelief, DBT is used in combination with the expressive arts to promote understanding and practice of new skills. A combination of group instruction and individual sessions enables more effective and enduring growth, with the goal of assisting participants in taking charge of their lives.
