Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)
Developed by Dr. Marsha Linehan and published in the 1980s, this approach has evidence for individuals with maladaptive under control presentations. DBT’s focus is on increasing an individual’s capacity to regulate emotions, tolerate distress, and reduce impulsivity.
Gold Coast DBT provides individual therapy, clinical assessment and full DBT group programs.
Radically Open DBT (RO-DBT)
Developed by Dr. Thomas Lynch and published in the early 2000s this approach has evidence for individuals with maladaptive over control. RO-DBT’s focus is on increasing an individual’s awareness of social signalling, connecting with their ‘tribe’, and increasing a capacity for openness.
Gold Coast DBT provides individual therapy, clinical assessment and full RO-DBT skills classes.
Carers and Friends Support Group
Our C-DBT group program has been adapted from the evidence-based family connections program, originally created by Dr. Alan Fruzzetti and Dr. Perry Hoffman in the USA, with the input of a range of carers and clinicians.
Our Carers, Family and friends support program runs over 10 weeks and provides attendees with a range of DBT informed skills and resources to enhance their capacity to support individuals with emotion regulation difficulties.
