Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a highly effective treatment for Eating Disorders, depression, self-injury, suicidality, anxiety, addictions, anger issues and Borderline Personality Disorder.
Developed in the late 1980s by psychologist Dr. Marsha Lineahan, there has been a host of research conducted over the past few decades to support its effectiveness in providing symptom reduction.
DBT is a skills-based therapy, meaning that the treatment aims at helping individuals learn effective coping skills to better tolerate distress, regulate emotions, interact effectively in relationships and learn to be more present (mindfulness).
