DBT has been successfully applied to a variety of presenting problems, including substance abuse, self-injury, and suicidal adolescents and adults.DBT Center – San Gabriel Valley and Patricia Gieselman, MFT invite you to our one-day overview of the four modules and corresponding skills of DBT. Modules teach skills in the following areas:

Emotion Regulation How to manage emotions more effectively

Distress Tolerance – How to be in a bad situation without making it worse
