DIALECTICAL BEHAVIOUR THERAPY

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) is an evidence-based therapy for a range of mental health issues including Borderline Personality Disorder, Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Bipolar Disorder. Marsha Linehan pioneered this therapy as a treatment for suicidal clients to ‘help get them out of Hell.’ DBT involves leaning skills in mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation and interpersonal effectiveness. It is about validating our emotions and changing our behaviour.
