DBT changes lives!

DBT-C is a treatment program that focuses on skill development for parents of kids (typically kids under the age of fourteen) who are emotionally sensitive and reactive. DBT-C focuses on changing the child’s environment to meet the child’s needs.
Emotionally vulnerable children can exhibit the following behaviors:

  • Hyper-reactivity
  • Severe temper outbursts
  • Irritability
  • Difficulty with change and transitions
  • Easily bored
  • Rapidly shifting attention
  • Hyperactivity
  • Impulsivity
  • Sensory sensitivity (e.g., touch, smell, hearing, taste)
  • Severe interpersonal problems with friends or family
  • Suicidal thoughts, comments, or behaviors

Goals of DBT-C:
