Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), created by Dr. Marsha Linehan, is an effective evidence-based treatment model using skills training to “change behavioral, emotional, thinking, and interpersonal patterns associated with problems in living”. (Linehan 2015) Originally known for its effectiveness in working with patients with borderline personality disorder, DBT has now been shown to be beneficial for numerous populations and settings.
Reinforcing the skills for mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness through music therapy can support your patients/clients who are involved in a DBT program as well as those who are not.

Can my DBT participants have access at home during the pandemic?
Absolutely! We have a separate client version for DBT participants! This way they can use the videos and our lessons at home to reinforce what you are teaching them in your sessions.
How often do you add new material?
We add new material once per week in the members portal. We don’t want to overwhelm you with too much at once so we even give you time to catch your breath, and implement what you’ve learned so far.

We all have experience facilitating DBT informed music therapy groups, and are often found co-leading groups with psychologists, social workers, and other DBT skills group leaders.
Are we allowed to show the videos directly to the DBT participants?
Of course! Our mission is to help you teach; so, you have our permission to show the videos to the DBT participants.
