How can DBT help my Personality disorder?

Could DBT Benefit you?

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is a system of therapy originally designed by Marsha M. Lindehan, a psychology researcher at the University of Washington, designed to treat people with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). DBT is a combination of standard cognitive-behavioral techniques for emotional regulation and reality-testing with concepts of distress tolerance and acceptance. It uses mindful awareness techniques largely derived from Buddist meditative practice. Research has indicated that DBT is also effective in treating patients who present varied symptoms and behaviors associated with spectrum mood disorders including self-injury.
