What is Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)?

DBT is an evidence-based, comprehensive system of therapy created by Dr. Marsha Linehan, psychologist and researcher (www.linehaninstitute.org). DBT aims to effectively treat people suffering from complex, chronic emotional and behavioral problems. DBT was originally developed to treat people meeting criteria for Borderline Personality Disorder; however DBT is also proven highly effective in treating people suffering from life-threatening and quality-of-life-threatening behaviors including suicidality, self-harm, impulsive self-destructive behaviors, chaotic and volatile interpersonal relationships, anxiety and panic disorders, mood disorders, substance abuse problems, eating disorders, anger problems and other severe mood and behavioral problems. DBT’s treatment philosophy aims primarily at helping each person find an effective balance or ‘synthesis’ between acceptance and change, while learning  new and more effective ways to cope. DBT teaches people to live a Life Worth Living! For more information about DBT, please follow this link: www.behavioraltech.org.

Types of DBT Therapy:

  • Fully Adherent DBT: Full DBT consists of the application and use of the four components of DBT originally researched for effectiveness: Individual therapy sessions using standard DBT interventions with a DBT trained therapist, attendance to a DBT skills group, DBT phone coaching between sessions with the individual DBT therapist along with the DBT therapist’s regular attendance to an adherent DBT Consultation Team.
  • DBT Informed Therapy: DBT informed therapy consists primarily of weekly individual therapy, with a DBT trained therapist using standard DBT interventions but without the strict adherence to the originally researched model. DBT informed therapy is generally provided for people who can reach treatment and life goals using an abbreviated version of adherent DBT.
