DBT = Dialectical Behavior Therapy

What is Dialectical Behavior Therapy? A Definition.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a type of cognitive-behavioral therapy that focuses on the psychosocial aspects of therapy, emphasizing the importance of a collaborative relationship, support for the client, and the development of skills for dealing with highly emotional situations (Psych Central, 2016).

DBT was created for the treatment of individuals struggling with suicidal thoughts but has matured into a treatment for a range of other conditions that involve dysfunctional emotional regulation. It is currently considered the “gold standard” for borderline personality disorder and has even been applied to the treatment of substance abuse and eating disorders (Linehan Institute, n.d.).

DBT is generally characterized by its two main components:

  • Individual weekly therapy sessions;
  • Weekly group therapy sessions.
