What Will I Do?

In Dialectical Behavior Therapy, you will learn to replace maladaptive behaviors with more helpful ones.  These new behaviors will be a part of one of four categories: Mindfulness (the ability to be wise and in the present moment), Interpersonal Effectiveness (the ability to form productive relationships with self-respect), Emotion Regulation (the ability to understand and manage the full range of emotions), and Distress Tolerance (the ability to take care of yourself during sub-optimal times).

What is Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)?

DBT was developed to help people build a “Build a Life Worth Living,” as creator Dr. Marsha Linehan says.  Dr. Matthew Mandelbaum finds that it can help people “Build a Life of Worth”.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) was developed by Dr. Marsha Linehan. It is an evidence-based treatment designed to help people “Build a Life Worth Living,” as Dr. Marsha Linehan says.  DBT combines Western practices of cognitive behavioral therapy with Eastern contemplative practices of mindfulness to create problem solving skills that bring about change.   With dialectics, people learn to avoid black and white thinking and can learn to tolerate ambiguity to see the potential for development.  Originally developed  to worked with clients who have borderline personality disorder, DBT has been used to treat those who have depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, PTSD, eating disorders and other conditions.

People have come to DBT seeking help with life skills that cover  four main competencies: mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, emotion regulation and distress tolerance.

Why Choose Dr. Matthew G. Mandelbaum, PhD, MSEd, MA?

I believe in the human capacities for hope, faith, and optimism. These capacities can be learned. DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) can be a helpful way for many to learn them.  I believe that the learning can take place in an environment that incorporates joy and seriousness.  I believe in the power of the journey to create a more authentic self.   When it comes to understanding Executives, Business Professionals, Emerging Adults, Educators, and University Students, I can relate on multiple levels, because I have been them all and I have worked with all of those populations.  I know about developing hopes and dreams and about creating an action plan to turn dreams into reality.  I understand that sometimes life unfolds itself in a non-linear way and that not all those who wander are lost.
