Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
All of us could find ways to benefit from this creative and experiential therapy and become more effective and confident in our relationships at home and work. The best part? You’re part of a group so you can enjoy the dialogue and perspectives of others.
What is DBT?
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) sounds clinical, but it’s really just a form of specialized individual or group therapy that can benefit everyone. DBT helps us become more fluent in skills that we use to navigate life more smoothly. It helps us hone skills like:
- emotional regulation
- interpersonal relations
- stress tolerance
A creative, experiential way to experience therapy.
Did you know our Bridging Hope team has over ten years of experience leading DBT skills groups? We’re one of the Twin Cities leading providers of DBT Skills Groups and conduct them with an experiential and creative approach.
Experiential means that we teach the skills in a “hands on” format to make it easier to apply the skills. We use worksheets, videos, mindfulness practices, and different activities. This may even include equine therapy with horses, painting, and yoga.
