DBT stands for Dialectical Behavior Therapy. It is a form of group and individual therapy designed by Marsha Linehan. It is a four maodual course that teaches life skills and skills to cope with distress. You can learn more about it at www.dbtself-help.com. The first modual is about mindfulness and how to make a wise decision. The next is Interpersonal Skills and how to handle yourself in different types of interactions. Then there is Emotion Regulation which guides you in figuring out what your emotions are and how to decrease emotional suffering. Finally there are the Distress Tolerance skills which instruct you to cope with distress effectively through activities or self soothing. Many people who have Boarderline Personality Disorder (BPD) have gone through this therapy as well as others with depression, addictions, eating disorders or PTSD to name a few. In short this therapy is useful to everyone dealing with life. Some people who have "graduated" from DBT as I have still might want to talk to others who have also learned the skills, or people who are just learning or want to learn more about skills. Anyone can talk here. I'll do my best to answer any questions about DBT.
