Turning Point Healing Centers – Dialectical Behavior Therapy in Phoenix, AZ

Harmonizing Emotions: Dialectical Behavior Therapy for Teens

Emotions, especially in the turbulent adolescent years, can often become overwhelming. Turning Point Healing Centers harnesses the power of Dialectical Behavior Therapy–DBT to help teens find balance, regulate emotions, and build lasting life skills. Dialetical Behavioral Therapy is slightly different than CBT in that it places extra emphasis on mindfulness and accepting emotions. While this may not seem much different than CBT, there is a subtle but important difference in the way the modalities treat different mental health concerns and conditions.
