“It’s hard to be happy without a life worth living. This is a fundamental tenet of DBT.
Of course, all lives are worth living in reality. No life is not worth living.
But what is important is that you experience your life as worth living.
One that is satisfying, and one that brings happiness.”
― Marsha M. Linehan, Creator of DBTWhat is Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)? DBT is a structured therapy program created to help with managing emotions, stress, and relationships. It focuses on four main concepts: Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Emotion Regulation, and Interpersonal Effectiveness. DBT is a weekly program involving an individual therapy session, a skills training group session, and the option for phone coaching as needed. DBT is a considerable commitment, but it can significantly improve the quality of life. How can DBT be helpful to those who have not found relief with other forms of therapy?
