Dialectical Behaviour therapy (DBT) is a type of therapy which has many similarities to Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) , though DBT was developed particularly for those who tend to experience very intense emotions.
Like CBT, DBT focusses on changing certain thought patterns or behaviours however in DBT there is also a focus on accepting who you are. MBT is particularly effective for those who experience intense emotional distress and overwhelming anger which can lead to aggressive behaviour both towards ourselves and others. It is also helpful for those who experience difficulties in relationships and find it hard to trust others. Other common experiences, for which DBT can be particularly helpful, include difficulties in trusting others in significant relationships and feelings of betrayal or suspicion.
