Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an evidence-based theory with many pros to treatment. If you can find a trained DBT therapist in your area and can afford to undergo DBT treatment, you have an excellent opportunity to overcome even your worst symptoms and behaviors. Therapists who have expertise in DBT have the training needed to help you successfully recover from addictions and psychiatric disorders, such as Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), and gain the skills needed to improve your quality of life.
Through Dialectical Behavior Therapy, you will become proficient in the four DBT skills: mindfulness, emotion regulation, interpersonal effectiveness, and distress tolerance. DBT will teach you to identify emotions as they arise and to sit with those emotions long enough to avoid acting impulsively. Dedicated patients can learn to overcome or greatly reduce emotional dysregulation and go on to lead lives that are relatively symptom-free.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy also offers patients a transparent team approach to therapy that includes both a team of professionals who confer about your treatment, as well as other patients seeking to learn new coping skills. This means that DBT clients are supported and given feedback throughout the entire therapeutic process, which can foster a greater dedication to treatment as meaningful relationships develop and encouragement comes from peers as well as professionals.
