DBT is an effective skills based treatment that enhances the quality of life for anyone struggling to manage intense emotions, such as anger, shame, anxiety, and depression.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a treatment approach that focuses on helping individuals live a valued life despite experiencing psychological distress. ACT teaches psychological flexibility and consists of a number of techniques including mindfulness meditation, acceptance, cognitive delusion, and values clarification. Cognitive delusion teaches one how to interact differently with internal thoughts and feelings, in essence to realize one's thoughts and feelings shouldn't necessarily reality.
Individuals enter treatment at different stages. Some may be ready to engage in the treatment process. Others may recognize the need for change but may be ambivalent or unable to commit to change. Effective treatment planning incorporates an assessment of an individual's readiness for change and the personal obstacles interfering with psychological and behavioral change. Motivational Interviewing is one set of techniques designed to help individuals resolve their ambivalence about behavior change.
