Let's Talk:

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) in Toronto

Do you find yourself struggling to manage your emotions in difficult situations? Are you looking for a distinct approach to manage your thoughts and feelings? 

If so, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) might be what you are looking for.

What is Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)?

DBT is an evidence-based therapy approach. Its focus is to help you increase your ability to manage intense emotions, improve relationships with others, cope with stress and become more mindful.

DBT aims to help you learn new skills to better manage your emotions and reduce the frequency and severity of these behaviors. 

DBT has since been found to be effective in the treatment of the following:

  • Substance use and addiction
  • Eating disorders
  • Mood disorders 
  • Trauma 
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Impulsive behaviors

DBT typically involves individual therapy sessions, as well as group skills training sessions in which individuals learn new skills such as mindfulness, emotion regulation, and communication skills.

Benefits of DBT

DBT has been found to be helpful for many people struggling with a variety of concerns. But what makes it so special?

One of the main advantages of DBT is its focus on acceptance and change. It helps individuals to accept themselves, even if they don’t like certain aspects of their lives. 

It also encourages individuals to take incremental steps towards making positive changes, instead of just making sweeping changes. 

There are many potential benefits to DBT. Some of the benefits include:

  • Improved ability to manage and regulate emotions
  • Enhanced communication and interpersonal skills
  • Greater self-awareness and self-understanding 
  • Improved decision-making and problem-solving skills
  • Reduced frequency and severity of impulsive and self-destructive behaviors

What should you know about DBT prior to treatment?

Here are a few things you should expect in DBT sessions:

  • Receive support in a safe and non-judgmental space – DBT therapists are there to listen, guide and provide you feedback.  
  • Learn skills to help you have more control over your emotional state. 
  • Skills learned in sessions are tailored based on your unique needs. 
  • Participate actively in DBT treatment.

Keep in mind that DBT is not a ‘quick fix’ and is a relatively intensive type of psychotherapy – but with the right guidance and commitment, it can lead to positive outcomes. 

If you are considering DBT, you should work with a qualified therapist who can help you create a plan that works for you.
