About Dialectical Behavior Therapy

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a gold standard, evidence-based cognitive behavioral therapy developed by Marsha M. Linehan.

DBT is commonly used to treat suicidal behaviors, borderline personality disorder and other severe and complex mental health disorders including: emotion dysregulation, post-traumatic stress disorder, eating disorders, substance dependence, depression and anxiety-related issues.

The treatment's flexibility and ease of use have made it so that DBT is compatible for children, adolescents, adults, the elderly, families, and correctional populations. DBT is intended to increase clients' behavioral capabilities, motivation to behave skillfully, ensure generalization of skillful behaviors, environmental support of new behavior, and therapist' capability and motivation to work with such challenging clients.
