About the Series

Have you ever felt stressed or overwhelmed? Sometimes our emotions get the best of us. Many types of therapy help you manage your thoughts in order to improve your mood. However, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is different: it tackles your emotions head-on. DBT takes concepts that are typically associated with wellness practices - such as mindfulness and stress management - and gives you research-backed ways to leverage those concepts and manage your emotions in a healthy, productive way.

This enlightening series also features an example dialectical behavior therapy session between Dr. Judy Ho and host, Kyle Kittleson, which is analyzed in the final episode. This series is the ultimate tool for understanding DBT: the evidence-based, accelerated way to feel better and change your life.

“I’m doing DBT for my BPD, depression, and anxiety. For the first time in my life, I feel hopeful that I can manage a future.”
