DBT individual therapy is required once per week. It includes keeping a weekly diary card and working on skills learned in group. DBT individual therapy is required to be in DBT skills group. Skills group is also a requirement of DBT individual therapy, in our offices. DBT is considered an intensive outpatient treatment model. In order to have this model work most effectively it is designed to have 4 parts. DBT individual therapy, DBT skills group, DBT peer consultation (therapists meet), and DBT phone coaching. Effectiveness of the different parts has not been studied; therefore, to meet best practice standards, SCS offers (requires) all 4 components.
