Online Dialectical Behavioral Therapy Group
Do you find yourself struggling to control your emotions?
Have you experienced a love-hate relationship with romantic partners, friends or family?
Has your sense of self been difficult to find at times- as though you are just an observer of your life?
Have you self harmed in order to cope with intense emotional pain?
If you find yourself answering yes to any of these questions you may benefit from a type of therapy called "Dialectical Behavioral Therapy".
This therapy was founded by a psychologist named Marsha Linehan. She developed this therapy because she was suffering from the same problems listed above and was not getting better with traditional cognitive-behavioral or psychoanalytical work. Dialectical Behavioral Therapy was designed to take place in group setting, however further research and practice has shown you can this therapy can be adapted and provided on an individual basis. Dr. Linehan believed the group was the best place to practice new skills in a safe place so it may be important to have a solid support network around you to practice what you learn in your individual sessions.
