What is the DBT Worksheet about?

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an evidence-based therapeutic approach based on the larger Cognitive Behavioral therapy (CBT). DBT works just like CBT but also focuses on intense emotions and how to regulate them to change an unwanted behavior. Apart from emotional regulation, DBT also employs the following strategies: mindfulness, which helps an individual focus on the present, crisis handling through distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness that focuses on enhancing social interactions. While DBT was initially used to treat mood and personality disorders, recent developments have made it effective in treating anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, eating disorders, among other mental conditions.
