Method: Dialectical Behavioral Therapy® (DBT®) is a cognitive-behavioral treatment modality developed by Marsha Linehan. DBT® applies a wide range of cognitive and behavioral approaches to the symptoms exhibited by the client, resulting in decreased problem behavior and increased healthy coping strategies. DBT® was originally created to treat chronically suicidal clients who were diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, it was the first psychotherapy found to be effective with this population. Since its inception, DBT® has been extensively studied and has been found to be an effective treatment option for numerous axis I disorders including depression, bipolar, ADHD, domestic violence, self-injury behavior, substance abuse and eating disorders.
