Dialectical Behaviour Therapy
Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) is designed to help people change unhelpful ways of thinking and behaving, while also accepting who they are. It helps people learn to manage emotions by recognising, experiencing, and accepting them.
DBT can also help people to understand why they might harm themselves, so they are more likely to change their harmful behaviour.
DBT is usually used to help people diagnosed with borderline personality disorder as people with this disorder feel uncontrollable emotions, have troubled relationships, and have a disturbed sense of self.
