“Step One is a first step in turning fear into hope; confusion into confidence.  Early Intervention is not simply a program-it’s a philosophy of family centered care.  It’s a program where professionals listen to what families need and affirm their choices. – Step One Family

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is an innovative and evidence-based program for individuals who have experienced traumatic events in their lives and are having difficulty dealing with ensuing behaviors.

The DBT program teaches skills that help to prevent impulsive behaviors that may result in self-harm, ineffective communication with family and friends, and less satisfying interactions in the community.

Aspire Health Alliance’s Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) programs are designed for children (ages 9-12), *teens (ages 13-18), and adults (age 18+) displaying symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder, and/or major personality disorders. Originally developed by Dr. Marsha Linehan for the treatment of suicidal behaviors, DBT is an innovative, compassionate, and evidence-based treatment also proven effective for individuals struggling with emotional dysregulation, impulsivity, and interpersonal communication problems.

The goal of Aspire Health Alliance’s DBT programs is to provide clients with the skills to overcome the impulse to self-harm and interact more positively with family, friends, and the community. With a focus on developing mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, emotional regulation, and distress tolerance, Dialectical Behavior Therapy’s skill-building modules are aimed at preventing hospitalization and the frequent use of emergency psychiatric services.

*Dialectical Behavior Therapy for adolescents (ages 13-18) is offered at our Braintree and Marshfield locations, with a parent or guardian in attendance during Group Skills.
