When it comes to treating your disorder, not every method of therapy is the same. Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a powerful, evidence-based treatment modality used to treat a variety of psychiatric disorders. If you suffer from Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), depression, anxiety, substance abuse, or an eating disorder, our DBT program can help you successfully recover.
At the DBT Center of Southern California in Los Angeles, a division of Clearview Treatment Programs, we incorporate comprehensive DBT therapy into all levels of care. Our specially trained team of DBT therapists can help you achieve lasting recovery from a variety of mental health disorders and addictions.
Individual DBT therapy sessions, DBT skills groups, and DBT coaching are incorporated into all of our DBT programs. Our team of DBT therapists has received training from Behavioral Tech, Marsha Linehan’s training institute, or UCLA Harbor Hospital’s DBT training program.
The DBT Center of Southern California is the only treatment center on the West Coast that offers a full continuum of care, including our residential DBT, day treatment DBT, and outpatient DBT programs. All treatment programs utilize comprehensive DBT therapy, as well as a variety of cutting-edge treatments, to meet your individual needs.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy incorporates mindfulness practice along with elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) as a central component of treatment. DBT targets self-injurious and suicidal behaviors, addresses behaviors that interfere with successful treatment, and works to help you improve your overall quality of life.
DBT Skills and Groups
Dialectical Behavior Therapy is a skill-building approach that works through the development of four DBT skill sets. The various skills are taught in DBT groups that emphasize the following:
- Mindfulness meditation, to help you live in the moment and completely experience your senses and emotions.
- Interpersonal effectiveness, which can help improve your relationships and increase assertiveness.
- Emotion regulation, to help you learn to pay attention to your emotions and successfully manage them.
- Distress tolerance, which can help you establish healthy ways to control impulsive behaviors.
