DIALECTICAL BEHAVIOR THERAPY (DBT)-INFORMED PSYCHOTHERAPY IN NYC
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a multi-component evidence-based talk therapy that focuses on helping clients live a life worth living. DBT is a type of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) that emphasizes practical skills training under the following categories: Emotion Regulation, Distress Tolerance, Interpersonal Effectiveness and Mindfulness.
DBT can be effective at producing significant and long-lasting improvement by decreasing the frequency and severity of destructive behaviors while also emphasizing strengths and translating coping skills into a person’s everyday life. Clients who are well suited for DBT may be asked to use DBT Diary Cards.
We are DBT-informed providers. All therapists have completed a minimum of 4-days (28 hours) of intensive in person DBT training from Licensed Psychologists with expertise in DBT. All therapists receive ongoing DBT-informed mentoring from Emily Davenport who has completed over two-years (175+ hours) of intensive DBT training and consultation from Shari Manning, PhD of the Treatment Implementation Collaborative.
*We are not part of an adherent DBT program as we do not provide standardized phone coaching, skills groups nor are we part of an adherent consultation team at this time.
