Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) for Children

Child Therapy

This type of therapy assists in providing support for two elements at once, hence the word dialectical. It combines the core principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Mindfulness. It’s a true combination of the “I am doing the best I can” with the “I need to do better.”

This evidence-based model has been used to support adolescents for (but not limited to) anxiety, depression, and borderline personality disorders as well as those with extreme emotional instability. Many have reported success by blending the acceptance strategies of Mindfulness with the change elements of CBT.
