Oooops, actually I think you mean DBT (Dialectical behavior therapy) - Kitty mentioned that - I'll let her know you would like to discuss it.

it's been about 10 years since i've done dbt. so i don't remember alot about it, other than it's about living in the moment and learning how to deal with problems on a day to day basis. it teaches you how to change your viewpoint so you can see the problems in a light that will help you to deal with them. as bipolars we often have skewed viewpoints and we don't see reality. with dbt you learn how to change that.

it was originally developed for people with bpd, but has been found to work well with bp. here's a link for more info.
