As a counselor working with a clinical population, I see a lot of self-injurious behavior. I have been training in a theory called DBT, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, in order to begin running a group for girls who cut. Cutting is not necessarily understood by parents as each generation has its own issues. The purpose of this video is to inform the viewers of the efficacy of the theory and to direct other counselors to these materials for more information.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is an effective form of treatment for self-harm issues such as cutting. DBT is an evidenced-based treatment that aids its patients to reshape their viewpoints about themselves and their worlds.
