Dialectical Behavioral Therapy is a specialized form of psychotherapy designed to treat people who have difficulty controlling extreme emotions, such as borderline personality disorder. People who experience borderline personality disorder often have histories of sexual abuse and trauma, intense fear of abandonment, and self-harm behavior. Clients experiencing these conditions benefit greatly from DBT as it helps to combat these feelings and help you find happiness.
Our DBT treatment centers use an integrated treatment approach that combines weekly individual DBT therapy sessions, weekly DBT group therapy sessions, and phone consultation. Highland Springs Specialty Clinic’s DBT program combines cognitive behavioral therapy techniques with concepts borrowed from Eastern spirituality.
The weekly individual sessions focus on the troubles in the patient’s life and problem solving behavior. Symptoms including suicidal thoughts and self-injury are discussed first, followed by negative behaviors that can interfere with the therapy program. Methods on improving self-worth and self-image are addressed in individual meetings, as well as learning to cope and overcome post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Weekly DBT group therapy sessions last approximately two hours and are led by one of our experienced behavioral health therapists. Clients learn four different life skills in group therapy: interpersonal effectiveness, distress tolerance/reality acceptance, emotion regulation, and mindfulness. The success of a DBT program depends on a strong working relationship between the patient and therapist. At Highland Springs, our therapists are trained experts in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and can help you achieve results.
If you or a loved one is struggling with borderline personality disorder, PTSD, or another condition treatable by DBT, Highland Springs is here to help. Fill out the form or contact us today for more information.
