Types of Therapeutic Services

Individual Therapeutic Service

Although BTPC clinicians utilize an array of therapeutic techniques including interpersonal psychotherapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and acceptance and committment therapy (ACT), we are committed to evidence-based practice. We most typically employ the principles of CBT, DBT, and ACT in individual psychotherapy. The collaborative nature of CBT, DBT, and ACT support a structured and goal-oriented therapeutic process that emphasizes specific skills and approaches. Through a focus on the relationship between a person's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, CBT, DBT, and ACT utilize both cognitive and behavioral techniques. CBT, DBT, or ACT frameworks actively engage the client through homework assignments, behavior tracking, and in-session therapeutic activities. Research has supported the effective use of these therapeutic frameworks for a wide array of emotional and behavioral problems.
