What is Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)?

DBT was developed to help people build a “Build a Life Worth Living,” as creator Dr. Marsha Linehan says.  Dr. Matthew Mandelbaum finds that it can help people “Build a Life of Worth”.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) was developed by Dr. Marsha Linehan. It is an evidence-based treatment designed to help people “Build a Life Worth Living,” as Dr. Marsha Linehan says.  DBT combines Western practices of cognitive behavioral therapy with Eastern contemplative practices of mindfulness to create problem solving skills that bring about change.   With dialectics, people learn to avoid black and white thinking and can learn to tolerate ambiguity to see the potential for development.  Originally developed  to worked with clients who have borderline personality disorder, DBT has been used to treat those who have depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, PTSD, eating disorders and other conditions.

People have come to DBT seeking help with life skills that cover  four main competencies: mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, emotion regulation and distress tolerance.
