Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) Mood Disorders Group

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) was developed by noted University of Washington clinician Marsha Linehan, Ph.D. Today, DBT has a long and well-documented history of effectiveness in the treatment of mood disorders. Our professionals received their training from Dr. Linehan’s Behavioral Tech, LLC, and have many years of solid experience implementing results-oriented DBT-based recovery programs.

The Southlake Center is pleased and proud to offer you the finest in DBT-based mood disorders care through the DBT Mood Disorders Group. The group focuses on skills-building in four core areas: Core Mindfulness, Interpersonal Effectiveness, Emotion Regulation, and Distress Tolerance. Mindfulness training equips you to take back control over your mind’s thoughts and your reactions to those thoughts. Interpersonal Effectiveness helps you develop assertiveness skills to ask for what you want and need in safe, healthy, and affirming ways. Emotional Regulation teaches you to name and experience your emotions without allowing them to overtake you. And Distress Tolerance cultivates your ability to stay present and focused for each moment of your life regardless of what the day may bring.
