Dialectical Behavior Therapy

Dialectical Behavior Therapy at Project Transition

At Project Transition, our mission is to enable each individual Member to graduate from our mental health treatment program and live a meaningful life in the community on the terms that he or she defines. Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an Evidence-Based Practice that is used to treat individuals who struggle with multi-diagnostic issues that can interfere with their pursuit of their ‘life-worth-living.’

DBT treatment is a comprehensive evidence-based mental treatment. DBT treatment principles target individual improvement in:

  • Trauma symptoms like flashbacks and urges to self-harm
  • Ability to regulate emotions, control aggressive behavior, and live independently in the community

Who benefits from Dialectical Behavior Therapy?

  • Members with Multidiagnostic Mental Illness who suffer from the devastation of emotional and behavioral dysregulation resulting in debilitating symptoms, as well as suicidal and para-suicidal symptoms
  • Friends and Family Members benefit from improved relationships with their loved ones who learn interpersonal skills to manage symptoms and regulate behavior

The Project Transition Clinical Team uses evidence-based interventions and clinical tools, backed by extensive research, to treat individuals who have struggled with difficult to treat mental illness.
