Intensive Dialectical Behavioral Therapy

Intensive Dialectical Behavior Therapy (IDBT) is a12-18-month skills-based program for adults who struggle with complex and pervasive emotion-based problems. IDBT is based on a model called Dialetical Behavior Therapy (DBT).

DBT is based on a skills-training model that balances acceptance vs. change. In DBT, clients learn skills to help them stay in the present moment, get through a crisis without making a situation worse, regulate emotions, and ask for what they want and need while maintaining and improving relationships.

The IDBT program includes four components of comprehensive DBT:

  • Individual therapy
  • Skills training groups
  • Time-limited phone coaching
  • DBT consultation team
