We offer DBT in our residential treatment center as well as in our outpatient program. DBT differs from traditional CBT in the emphasis on validation - a powerful tool whereby the therapist and the patient work on "accepting" uncomfortable thoughts, feelings and behaviors rather struggling with them. Once an identified thought, emotion or behavior has been validated, the process of change no longer appears impossible, and the goals of gradual transformation become reality. DBT process groups are powerful ways to identify high risk situations and develop new skills as well as avoidance strategies around issues that once held us back in life.
