DBT Therapy Training

What is DBT Therapy?

Dialectical Behavior or DBT Therapy is the most effective treatment for borderline personality disorder. DBT Therapy is the synthesis of traditional Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness skills borrowed from Buddhist practice. Most of today's top drug rehab facilities use DBT and CBT for drug treatment as well. Dr. Marsha Linehan developed DBT therapy to help patients with borderline personality disorder. CBT alone was less than effective in helping these patients. Studies support the claims that DBT therapy is the most effective, if not the only effective borderline personality disorder treatment. Further studies show remarkable efficacy with borderline patients who are also addicted to drugs and alcohol. CBT has also been shown to be highly effective in the treatment of Cocaine addiction.

DBT Skills Training

We'll take you through Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and teach you DBT skills. DBT is generally taught in a skills group, coupled with one-on-one therapy either weekly or more frequently as part of an inpatient treatment program. We strongly recommend that you seek professional treatment with a qualified therapist rather than trying this on your own. Many people use this material in conjunction with DBT Treatment or as a refresher. This material is also useful to patients attending DBT as part of their Borderline Personality Disorder treatment.
