Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) is an empirically validated treatment that was developed by Dr. Marsha Linehan, and her team of therapists and researchers. Although initially it was developed as a treatment for people who have Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), and individuals who were suicidal and/or self-harming, it has since been used effectively with those who have Bipolar Disorder, Depression, Anxiety Disorders, Substance Use Problems or Addictions, Eating Disorders, anger issues, and other impulse control problems (e.g. shoplifting, excessive shopping, gambling, overeating).

DBT involves a combination of mindfulness, motivational, acceptance, cognitive, behaviour, and dialectical strategies. DBT aims to help clients regulate their emotions, behavior and relationships.
