​DBT IN INDIVIDUAL THERAPY


DBT in individual therapy focuses on balancing active problem solving with challenging behaviors through validation of the individual's thoughts and current emotional experiences.


This approach is particularly effective with people

who experience:


  • High sensitivity to emotional experiences
  • Intense behavioral responses to emotional stress
  • Slow return to feeling emotionally balanced
  • Have difficulty self-soothing physiological stress responses
