DBT: Short for Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, this is a form of psychotherapy that’s essentially CBT’s first cousin. It’s designed to help identify and change ineffective behavior patterns by learning what triggers the behavior. Think of “dialectical” as a logical, cause-and-effect relationship between what happens to us and how we behave. Key principles include mindfulness, radical acceptance, self-soothing, emotional regulation and interpersonal skills.
