Introductory and advanced dialectical behaviour therapy programming with Lyndsey Davies

Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) blends cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) with acceptance-based strategies stemming from Zen philosophy. Adaptations of DBT have been successful in treating clients with addictions, eating disorders and other complex problems. It has also proven to be effective in reducing suicidal, self-harm and other impulsive behaviours.
