How Does DBT Help?
DBT, or Dialectical Behavior Therapy, is a form of therapy that combines cognitive-behavioral techniques with mindfulness and acceptance strategies. It is often used to help people with mental health conditions.
In DBT group therapy, individuals meet with a therapist and other group members to learn and practice skills to manage their emotions, improve relationships, and change negative patterns of behavior. The group environment allows for support and validation from others who understand the challenges of living with a mental health challenge. The therapist guides the group through different exercises and discussions, and the group members can provide feedback and support to each other as they work on their goals.
DBT group therapy can be helpful by providing the skills and support you need to manage your emotions and improve your relationships, which can lead to a better overall quality of life.
