About

At the Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) Centre of Vancouver, we use compassionate, scientifically supported treatments to help people achieve goals that are important to them and increase the quality of their lives. Our clinicians provide evidence-based individual, group, and family services. We have a full DBT program, including individual therapy, telephone consultation, skills training groups, and a consultation team and also offer other Cognitive Behavioural (CBT) and Mindfulness & Acceptance Based Treatments. In addition, we regularly train and consult with mental health providers across Canada.

DBT is a treatment developed to help people struggling with complex problems such as borderline personality disorder, depression, anxiety, substance abuse, eating disorders as well as high-risk behaviours such as suicidality and self-harm. DBT is especially helpful for people who have difficulty understanding and managing their emotions.

Comprehensive DBT involves weekly individual therapy (usually 50 minutes) , the weekly group skills training, brief phone coaching on an as-needed basis, as well as the consultation team.

DBT Adolescent Group: Tuesday nights (4:30pm-6pm)

The DBT skills group program is a 26 week course that teaches DBT related skills such as managing and coping with overwhelming emotions (emotion regulation), building healthy relationships (interpersonal effectiveness), and tolerating emotional distress without making matters worse (distress tolerance) to adolescents and their parents/caregivers. The group is led by two of our clinicians and there are a maximum of 5 families in the group. Many participants will complete the program twice (i.e. one year) to consolidate the skills. Please note, this is not a drop-in class and the adolescent must see an individual therapist regularly.

Family & Loved Ones Group (May 6th - June 24th)

Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a serious mental health problem believed to affect approximately 1.6 percent of the population. Persons with BPD suffer intense emotional turmoil, often have difficulties with relationships, and are at risk for suicidal and self-harming behaviour. Although there is considerable hope for persons with BPD, and effective treatments exist, loved ones often struggle in finding the best way to support their affected family member(s) or friend(s) with BPD. This 8-week course is designed to provide partners, family, and friends with tools for better understanding and assisting loved ones.
