An Evidence-Based Treatment
DBT is an acronym for Dialectical Behavior Therapy, a skills-building therapeutic approach developed by Marsha Linehan, PhD. and extensively supported by efficacy studies to be effective for treating a variety of disorders and problems. Clarify Counseling is a Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) practice for teens and adults based in Greenville, South Carolina.
The decision to enter Dialectical Behavior Therapy is not just the client’s choice. Prior to admittance into Clarify’s DBT program, two DBT therapists meet with the potential client (and caregivers of teens) to swap information. Clients share their history and the therapists share information about the programs. No decision is made at the the time of this first meeting. Instead, the therapists bring the client’s information back to the weekly team meeting and the team determines whether they think DBT can be helpful for this client at this time. Meanwhile, the client needs to decide whether they can commit to full participation in a DBT program at this time.
