DBT focuses on helping a person learn to recognize, change, and control their own emotional states. DBT teaches a set of skills including Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Emotional Regulation, and Interpersonal Effectiveness. By learning these skills and applying them in individual sessions with DBT Trained Therapist clients can learn to manage emotions better, feel better, and have more control over their mental health and impulse control.
