Dialectical Behavioral Treatment (DBT) is also beneficial in treating those who exhibit disruptive behavior. DBT employs a number of different techniques to assist individuals in understanding how their feelings are impacting their behaviors and thoughts. These include mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotional regulation, and interpersonal skills. DBT can help individuals to live a better life by using new strategies for problem-solving instead of maladaptive coping methods such as aggression.
Research suggests that these treatments are effective in treating people with behavioral problems.
