Depending on the diagram for the problem, there could be different answers to this question.  I am going to assume that A, B and D are all on the same line with B between A & D.  C is therefore on a line that intersects this line at point B. 

Angle ABC is 102 (given) and the angle DBC forms a linear pair with the angle.  This means that the two angles together form a straight line and are supplementary.  Thus, 102 + angle DBC - 180 and therefore, angle DBC = 78 degrees.
