Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), is a popular form of therapy used in people with Borderline Personality Disorders. Dialectical behaviour therapy may be best described by the title words: dialectical and behaviour.
Dialectical refers to the fact that in an argument there is an assertion and a position that opposes the assertion. To resolve the argument, a synthesis that incorporates the assertion and the opposition will help to move past the argument and resolve it. For patients with borderline symptoms, this provides a way to reduce symptoms and find meaning in their lives by balancing acceptance and change.
Behaviour refers to the need to use behavioural methods to change self-destructive behaviours (such as careless driving or cutting one’s arms). Different therapeutic methods like Mindfulness values and meditation techniques are applied in individual and group therapy sessions.
