Dialectical Behaviour Therapy
Oct 2, 2017
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a cognitive-behavioral treatment that was originally developed as a treatment for individuals living with the peaks and valleys of emotional dysregulation who meet the diagnosis criteria of borderline personality disorder (BPD). If you’re not sure what that means, check out this factsheet on emotional dysregulation and BPD.
Individuals supported by our DBT program benefit from a variety of therapeutic services such as one-on-one counseling, skill development groups and telephone consultations.
The goal of CMHA WW’s DBT program is to increase the quality of life and reduce the risk that individuals facing emotional dysregulation and borderline personality disorder experience. The program promotes the cultivation of meaningful and fulfilling lives while enhancing an individual’s ability to experience safety and stability.
