What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)?
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a collaborative, present-focused treatment that focuses on changing patterns of thinking, behavior, and emotional responding that are associated with distress. In CBT, clients learn techniques to recognize and change these patterns to improve daily functioning and life satisfaction.
What is Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)?
Dialectical Behavior Therapy is a highly specialized form of CBT designed to help people who have pervasive difficulties managing their emotions. DBT is a mindfulness-based therapy that balances the use of change strategies from cognitive behavioral therapy with acceptance strategies from Zen.
