Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an evidence-based therapeutic approach, devised in the late 1980’s by Marsha Linehan, Ph.D, of the University of Washington in Seattle. Its objective is helping individuals with emotion dysregulation

The overall goal of DBT is building a life worth living. DBT helps to alter maladaptive patterns of behavior, feeling, and thinking, which interfere with day-to-day living. It aims to build and sustain the motivation for living, for treatment, and for improving one’s quality of life.

The Core Elements of Dialectical Behavior Therapy:

 DBT is a systematic, specialized, goal-oriented, and time-limited therapeutic approach, that adheres to clear and distinct   principles regarding the treatment and the patient.

What is Dialectics?

Dialectical philosophy involves the notion of human development as a synthesis of oppositions, constant change, and a lack of absolute truths. In the context of DBT, dialectics means an attempt to reconcile oppositions through continuous synthesis. These oppositions may be in the way the patient perceives him or herself, the differences between the patient’s and their parents’ attitudes, the difference between the patient’s feelings one day and the next, and so on. 

Mindfulness

Mindfulness is the practice of concentrating on what is happening in the moment – what one is doing, thinking, or feeling – without judgment. Mindfulness is a core skill in DBT. It promotes a radical acceptance of reality, as well as of ourselves and others. 

 Cognitive-Behavioral principles

DBT includes setting and prioritizing behavior goals, as well as teaching new coping skills.
