Dialectical Behavior Therapy teaches a practical approach to better manage emotions. The relationship between acceptance and change is the root concept of DBT, and it promotes an “and” rather than an “either/or” way of thinking. DBT teaches how to cope with and change unhealthy behaviors and thoughts. It provides skills to manage emotions and decrease conflict in these four areas: mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance.
