Dialectical Behavior Therapy

Mastering Emotional Regulation & Building a Life Worth Living

Tulua Health embraces Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) as a cornerstone of our comprehensive treatment approach, offering individuals a path toward healing, emotional stability, and personal growth. DBT is renowned for its effectiveness in addressing a spectrum of mental health and addiction concerns, particularly where emotional dysregulation plays a key role.

What is Dialectical Behavior Therapy?

DBT is a cognitive-behavioral treatment developed by Dr. Marsha M. Linehan. It focuses on teaching individuals skills to cope with stress, regulate emotions, and improve relationships with others. Originally designed to treat borderline personality disorder, DBT has since been adapted for a wide range of issues, including substance use disorders, depression, anxiety, and eating disorders.

Core Components of DBT at Tulua Health

Our DBT program incorporates four primary modules, each designed to address critical aspects of emotional and behavioral regulation:

  1. Mindfulness: Cultivating an awareness of the present moment, enhancing acceptance, and reducing judgmental thoughts.
  2. Distress Tolerance: Developing strategies to withstand and survive crisis situations without resorting to harmful behaviors.
  3. Emotion Regulation: Learning to identify, understand, and alter intense emotional reactions that are causing problems in one's life.
  4. Interpersonal Effectiveness: Improving communication skills, assertiveness, and the ability to maintain healthy relationships.

The Tulua Health DBT Advantage

At Tulua Health, we integrate DBT within a holistic treatment framework, ensuring that therapy is tailored to the unique needs of each individual.
