Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a behavior treatment program that helps clients change their problem behavior by learning and applying alternative behavioral skills.
DBT is for clients who are experiencing difficulties regulating emotions and managing impulsive and self-injurious behaviors of which behaviors often hurt people around them. Through DBT behavior skills, they are able to change their ways of responses to others and to themselves.
Clients who were exposed to invalidating environment during their childhood often experience emotional dysregulation issues. Emotion dysregulation decreased the self-efficacy of their problem-solving skills, constantly creating conflicts with others and worsened their capacity of regulating emotions. Without proper treatment, the vicious cycle of invalidation aggravates the symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder
DBT is one of the most effective, scientifically–proven treatment for Borderline Personality Disorder and for the treatment of impulsive behaviors, eating issues and self-destructive behaviors that are induced by emotion dysregulation issues. Recent studies indicate that DBT is also effective to treat chronic depression, anxiety, PTSD, substance abuse and other related symptoms; many adults and chld/adolesecntes are benefited from DBT and live a new life.
Since 2003, DBT Center of Korea / the Tree Group has been providing the quality DBT Standard Program that is applied in the States and clients who were completed our DBT programs have been sharing their success stories and recommending our DBT program to others.
