What’s In A Name? (Part 1)

Apr 10, 2019

What’s in a name? Well, when it comes to the name of our practice a more important question is “what is DBT?”

For a wide variety of people – children, teens, adults, veterans, and more – Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a scientific protocol proven to be effective in helping manage their overwhelming emotions, self-destructive behaviors, and improve their interpersonal relationships. It’s not hyperbole to say that, for some, DBT has been a literal life-saver.

DBT is an intensive outpatient treatment method that was developed to provide effective treatment for people who struggle with self-destructive behaviors that prevent them from building a life worth living. There are a number of components to DBT, including a skill training that is tailored to the unique needs and learning styles of a client.

At DBT & EMDR Specialists, P.A., we offer the following customized DBT programs:

  • DBT For Adults: Being an adult can be extremely difficult, no matter how easy some people make it look on the surface. This program helps people take the first step toward a better future, providing the skills to cope with self-destructive behavior, severe depression, PTSD and more.
  • Trauma-Informed DBT: Helping clients make sense of their symptoms so they can overcome the struggles brought on by years and decades of traumatic memories.
  • DBT Prolonged Exposure (DBT PE): A program that gets to the root of client struggles when approaches such as medication and traditional therapies have not had the desired result.
  • Art Therapy: Offering to heal through hands-on creative expression, this program allows people to cope with life’s stressors, depression, and anxiety through artistic activities such as painting and drawing.
