Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) was originally developed by Marsha Linehan, a psychology researcher at the University of Washington. Empirical evidence suggests that DBT is one of the most successful treatments for difficult to treat disorders and Borderline Personality Disorder.
DBT skills training—provided individually or in a group setting—includes learning the following: emotion regulation, interpersonal effectiveness, distress tolerance, and mindfulness. DBT targets the issues that cause distress and teaches skills to deal with them without having to resort to self-defeating behaviors.
Pathways Counseling Services, a Scottsdale counseling practice, along with DBT can assist people who live in constant emotional pain, have difficulty maintaining healthy relationships and boundaries, have behavioral problems such as self-injuring, eating disorders, using substances, and losing control.
