DBT treatment for personality disorder will provide patients with an evidence based skills that when deployed will reduce problem behaviours, suicidality and help teach patients the skills they need to live stable and symptom free lives.
What is DBT?
Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) is a type of talking treatment. It’s based on cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), but has been adapted to help people who experience emotions very intensely.
It’s mainly used to treat problems associated with borderline personality disorder (BPD) and biploar disorder but it has also been used more recently to treat a number of other different types of mental health problems.
DBT also helps you to change unhelpful behaviours, but it differs from CBT in that it also focuses on accepting who you are at the same time. DBT places particular importance on the relationship between you and your therapist, and this relationship is used to actively motivate you to change.
