DBT and CBT are types of treatment approaches that focus on the association between emotions and behaviors. CBT, also known as cognitive behavioral therapy, is a psychotherapeutic method that promotes positive changes in behavior through the understanding of one’s thinking patterns and emotional mindset. DBT, also known as dialectical behavior therapy, is a type of cognitive-behavioral therapy that aims to teach the tools needed to be present, regulate emotions, and improve communication and relationships. Therapists, social workers, and counselors often practice a combination of these therapeutic techniques to treat a wide range of mental health conditions and disorders.
