Hi Dan

CBT is based on the Cognitive Model of Emotional Response.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy is based on the idea that our thoughts cause our feelings and behaviors, not external things, like people, situations, and events.  The benefit of this fact is that we can change the way we think to feel / act better even if the situation does not change.

DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) teaches the skills necessary to help you get what you want in your interactions with others and to help overcome unwanted, damaging or dysfunctional behavior. This is a treatment designed specifically for individuals with self-harm tendencies.  DBT is a modification of cognitive behavioral therapy.

I hope this helps answer your question.

Take Care.
