Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
Due to the current situation regarding social distancing, all DBT groups have been postponed until further notice. Please check back after the first of the year for updates. Thank You!
Starting in June 2021, Mandarin Counseling will offer a comprehensive DBT treatment program that will include group skills training along with our current individual and consultation sessions that are already in place.
Please contact our office for more information.
Treatment of people with borderline personalilty disorder is a marathon, not a sprint.
DBT is first and foremost based on the theory that states that borderline personality disorder develops out of, and is maintained by, an ongoing transaction between emotional vulnerability and dysregulation within the individual, and an experience of invalidation from the environment. As developed by Marsha Linehan, Ph.D., DBT has been found to provide hope to individuals.
