At TheraHive, our mission is to make DBT more accessible. In pursuit of this goal, we're excited to introduce the TheraHive DBT Skills Coach. This virtual assistant, powered by AI, is designed to bring DBT into the modern age and support practitioners in real-time. It's an innovative tool for those seeking immediate assistance in applying DBT skills.

Using Tech to Make DBT More Accessible

Phone coaching has always been an integral part of the DBT learning experience — it allows individuals to receive guidance from their therapist in real-life situations. However, consistent access to a therapist is a luxury not everyone can afford. Additionally, therapists can't always provide immediate feedback, which is vital for learning and applying DBT skills effectively. The TheraHive DBT Skills Coach addresses this gap by offering 24/7 support.

Your Always-Available DBT Companion

Fully trained in our comprehensive DBT curriculum, the TheraHive DBT Skills Coach can provide text and voice-based skill support for those that may not have access to traditional phone coaching or that lack access to a therapist. With this tool, immediate feedback is just a conversation away, any time of the day.
