Dialectical Behavior Therapy Programs (DBT)
DBT is a life improvement program for people that experience difficulty managing their emotions. Emotions like fear, shame, sadness, and anger can lead to extreme behaviors (suicide, self-harm, substance use), problems in relationships, difficulty managing thought (perception, worry, dissociation). The goal of this treatment is to help individuals develop a life they find meaningful and satisfying. The adult DBT Program requires a minimum 24-week commitment, and the Adolescent and Multi-Family Program is 25-weeks long. DBT Program participants will receive four services.
- Weekly Individual Therapy – Focused on enhancing motivation in treatment, problem solving, and implementation of skillful behavior in place of ineffective ones.
- Weekly Skills Training – Psycho-educational groups designed to teach new approaches to managing intense emotions, difficult social situations, and thinking problems.
- Phone Consultation – Designed to help with applying new skills in everyday life.
- Team – The DBT team provides support to therapists to enhance therapist motivation and improve treatment adherence.
Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE) for PTSD
PE is a treatment designed to help trauma survivors “emotionally process” their experience to reduce symptoms associated with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). PE is used with both military and civilian populations. Session frequency is typically weekly, and session length is 90 minutes. Average treatment duration is typically 8 – 15 weeks, and clinical trials support PE’s efficacy via telehealth. If you are located in South Carolina, there is still an effective option to treat PTSD.
Exposure and Response Prevention (EX/RP) for OCD
EX/RP is a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy designed to treat the symptoms of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). Session frequency is usually 2 times per week and session duration is 2 hours. The treatment usually takes 8-9 weeks to complete.
