Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)


Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) was originally developed as a treatment for Borderline Personality Disorder. More recently the DBT approach has been applied to eating disorders and substance abuse disorders.


DBT teaches skills to facilitate tolerance of, and coping with, marked negative emotional states. It aims to teach participants emotion regulation skills so that they are less inclines to result to more destructive coping approaches.


Controlled trials have found it to be an effective treatment for Borderline Personality Disorder.
