Dialectical Behavior Therapy Overview

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) was originally developed by Marsha Linehan for the treatment of individuals diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). In recent years many new psychotherapies have been studied for the treatment of BPD; however, DBT has been the most studied and most widely practiced of all. According to Swenson (2000), some of the reasons for DBT’s popularity are strong empirical support for the treatment, integration of four domains (biological, environmental, spiritual, and behavioral) into a unique treatment approach that appeals to many people with different backgrounds, and the synthesis of acceptance and change strategies.
