Dialectical Behavioral Therapy

Dialectic Behavioral Therapy came about in the last decade of the 20th century by Dr. Marsha Linehan, renowned as “the mother of DBT.” Interestingly, Dr. Linehan recently disclosed her struggles with Borderline Personality Disorder, the primary disorder that DBT treatment aims to treat. The prime objective for applying this psychotherapy is to provide support and skill development assisting people with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) to regulate their emotions and actions thus enhancing their productivity throughout everyday functioning.
