What is DBT-Informed Therapy?

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a cognitive-behavioral treatment approach that emphasizes the psychosocial aspects of therapy. DBT-Informed Therapy integrates the core principles of DBT into a broader therapeutic framework, focusing on enhancing clients' capabilities by teaching them behavioral skills. The therapy promotes acceptance and change through a compassionate, non-judgmental therapeutic relationship.

Core Components of DBT-Informed Therapy

Agnes Wohl utilizes DBT-Informed Therapy to focus on four primary areas of skill development:

  • Mindfulness: Cultivating an awareness of the present moment allows for a more profound understanding of one's emotions and thoughts.

  • Distress Tolerance: Increasing the ability to tolerate pain in difficult situations, not to change it.

  • Emotion Regulation: Learning to manage and change intense emotions causing problems in a person’s life.

  • Interpersonal Effectiveness: Improving the skills to ask for what one needs, say no, and manage relationship conflicts.
