Dialectical Behaviour Therapy
People with borderline personality disorder struggle with pervasive emotion regulation. They are unable to identify their feelings or emotions, lack the skills they need to manage their emotions and often develop problematic behaviours, such as self-harm, suicidal thoughts and substance abuse to help them cope.
Dialectical behaviour therapy was developed to help such people understand the relationship between emotions, thoughts and behaviours. The therapy is based on the notion that changing one of the elements changes the other elements. For instance, changing behaviours also alters related emotions and thoughts, and so on.
Dialectical behaviour therapy or DBT differs from other psychotherapy treatments in many ways. It looks at the patient holistically, using a custom approach that meets their treatment needs. It assesses how an individual’s mental health impacts their problem and vice versa.
