Dialectical Behavior Therapy(DBT) was developed by Marsha Linehan, Ph.D. In the years since, DBT has evolved to become a more frequently sought treatment for a variety of conditions. DBT was initially intended to aid those who were chronically suicidal, as an alternative to Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT). However, today it has proven effective in a variety of circumstances. Those suffering from interpersonal difficulties, treatment dropout, and other conditions have benefitted from DBT. Many strategies are utilized through DBT to get our clients where they would like to be.
