Does Remote DBT Work?
Remote DBT (dialectical behavior therapy) can be helpful for most people. Studies have shown that DBT provided through teletherapy or video conferencing can be as helpful as in-person DBT in reducing symptoms of some mental health conditions, such as depression, anxiety and borderline personality disorder.
Remote DBT allows you to have therapy from the comfort of your own home and can be more convenient for those who have difficulty with transportation or have mobility issues. In addition, remote DBT can be a good option for those who live in remote areas or have challenges finding a DBT therapist in their area.
However, remote DBT may not be appropriate for everyone. It may be less effective for individuals who have difficulty with technology or who have complex treatment needs that require in-person therapy. It is important for individuals to discuss with their therapist about what modality of DBT is best for them.
