On these pages, you will find resources for expanding our relationship skills. DBT or Dialectical Behavior Therapy holds that each of us can always learn more about our patterns of relating, of thinking, of feeling, and being in the world. We can learn skills and perspectives that help us to be more accepting of our current lives while also more able to effectively change. This ongoing (sorry, nothing is permanent) balance of acceptance and change is the core dialectic that guides our creating meaningful relationships.
