Dialectical Behavior Therapy

Dialectical behavior therapy is a psychosocial treatment designed specifically for individuals with self-harm behaviors, such as self-cutting, suicide thoughts, urges to suicide, and suicide attempts. The treatment itself is based largely in behaviorist theory with some cognitive therapy elements as well. In dialectical behavior therapy the primary dialectic is the dual focus on acceptance and change. The therapist must find the right balance of these two factors throughout treatment. The disorder is characterized by heightened sensitivity to emotion, increased emotional in-tensity and a slow return to emotional baseline. The effectiveness of dialectical behavior therapy has been demonstrated in many controlled studies across different research groups. Because of this success and due to similar behavior patterns, DBT is now being used in many settings as a viable therapy for the treatment of bipolar disorder. Acceptance procedures in dialectical behavior therapy include mindfulness (e.g., attention to the present moment, assuming a non-judgmental stance, focusing on effectiveness) and a variety of validation and acceptance-based stylistic strategies.
