What is Dialectical Behavior Therapy?A man meditates and thinks about dialectical behavior therapy

Dialectical behavior therapy in Orange County is an evidence-based form of therapy that helps you develop effective coping skills for mental disorders. Since behavioral or personality disorders are what often lead to addiction, we address these disorders to ensure a successful addiction recovery.

A therapy session in dialectical behavior therapy includes the following strategies:

Managing Destructive Behaviors

You identify the destructive behaviors that are affecting you and others. Your therapist teaches you how to control your behaviors that cause harm. They provide strategies that help you manage impulses that lead to these behaviors. 

Addressing Destructive Emotions

Your therapist helps you talk about your emotions and cope with the underlying issues that may be bottled up. They can help you work through traumatic experiences or circumstances you are struggling with. By talking about your emotions, you remove obstacles to true healing.

Solving Problems Effectively

You can collaborate with your therapist to find solutions to problems in your life. Learning to solve problems helps you to navigate all areas of your life successfully. You discover how to think more rationally as situations arise.

Reconnecting Relationships

If your addiction or disorder has alienated you from family, coworkers, or friends, DBT can help you reconnect. You can improve your communication skills and work out any detachment issues. You can learn how to foster healthy relationships with those around you.
