What is Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT)?

Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) is based on the idea that our emotions are regulated by our thoughts, and that we can change the way we feel by changing the way we think. For example, if you’re feeling anxious, you might have the thought “I’m not good enough.” changing this thought to “I can handle this” would likely reduce your anxiety. DBT aims to help people change their thoughts and behaviours in order to improve their emotional regulation.
