Learn About Our Program

Dialectical Behavior Therapy is an evidence based cognitive behavioral treatment developed by Dr. Marsha Linehan at The University of Washington. DBT has proven to be effective for adolescents struggling with emotional regulation. Using both acceptance and change strategies, DBT aims to help children and adolescents who struggle to manage intense emotions, impulsive behaviors, or self destructive urges by replacing these problem behaviors with skills to build a life worth living.

DBT at Daybreak Includes:

  • Individual Therapy
  • Skills Training Groups
  • Phone Coaching
  • Team Consultation

The DBT Team at Daybreak is led by Dr. Garry DelConte, who is a Linehan Board Certified DBT Clinician and has completed advanced intensive training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy with Dr. Linehan.
