Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, or DBT, is another therapeutic technique with a more structured and systematic approach, similar to CBT. 

VeryWellMind states that some common techniques involved in DBT include practicing mindfulness and observation (such as examining the sensations surrounding one’s breathing) and distress tolerance, in which a client learns to accept themselves and whatever situation they find themselves in; this can be accomplished through distraction and allowing one’s body to “take charge” and be led by one’s emotions, including getting up and moving around. Additionally, emotional regulation is a hallmark of DBT, in which a client can brainstorm an alternative activity to a negative emotion. 

No matter which DBT technique would be most helpful for you, Madrigal looks forward to applying this therapeutic approach to anyone for whom it would be helpful.
