Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, also known as DBT, is a branch of CBT that was developed in the 80s for those who find it difficult to regulate their emotions. This approach focuses on dialectics, or two opposing ideas. For example, you can acknowledge that you are doing the best you can, and that you want to try harder. Although these might seem to be two opposing facts, both are true at the same time. This therapy focuses on how to compromise and find a middle ground between two opposing points of view. It can also help with building skills in tolerating distress, regulating emotions, assertiveness, and mindfulness.
