Dialectical : Dialectical behavior therapy (dbt) is form of cognitive behavioral therapy. It was originally developed to help people with borderline personality disorders. Dbt can be used to help people cope with stress without using self destructive behavior, to improve interpersonal relations and to assist with modulating emotions. I have listed some resources in portland, oregon but there is a much longer list of providers who practice dbt in portland, oregon if you check helppro on line. Portland dialectic behavior therapy program, (503) 231-7854, www.Portlanddbt.Com robin friedman, lcsw (503) 348-4085 jody swisher, lcsw (503) 452-5058 bethprana novi, msw, cswa (503) 310-6795.

DBT: I think you are asking about dbt or dialectical behavior therapy. Go to http://behavioraltech.Org/index.Cfm and look up resources for patients. You should be able to find a list of properly trained therapists in your area.
