Dialectical Behavior Therapy

Dialectical Behavior Therapy at Project Transition

At Project Transition our mission is to enable each individual Member to transition from our 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 is a comprehensive evidence-based 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 is able to use evidence-based interventions and clinical tools, backed by extensive research, to treat individuals who have struggled with difficult to treat mental illness
