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.
