Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical Behavior Therapy is an evidence-based, cognitive behavioral treatment originally developed to treat chronic suicidal ideation, self-harm behaviors and traits of borderline personality disorder. The treatment model has proven effective in treating other complex, and challenging disorders such as substance dependence, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder [PTSD].

**The use of evidence-based interventions aligns with our agency’s vision to be the foremost mental health provider for youth, adults, and families in Carroll County by providing innovative, culturally sensitive, and highly-effective treatment. CCYSB curently uses five treatments which are evidence-based models requiring fidelity to the model.
