The Emotion Management Program, LLC (EMP) provides psychotherapy from a contextual behavior perspective. EMP specializes in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), an empirically validated treatment for persons who suffer from affective instability and who frequently engage in self-injurious and suicidal behavior.
The Emotion Management Program, LLC (EMP) specializes in DBT. EMP's approach differs from traditional DBT in that rather than operating from a cognitive behavior perspective, it is best understood as a contextual behavior approach. A cognitive behavior approach emphasizes change and control of private experience and rationality as the important outcome criteria. In contrast, a contextual behavior approach takes a functional approach, and emphasizes acceptance as the only viable stance toward private experience (in particular, troubling cognitions and emotions). It uses workability as the outcome criteria for evaluating effectiveness.
