Dialectical Behaviour Therapy was founded by Marsha Linehan (who suffered from Borderline Personality Disorder herself), and is used to predominantly treat Borderline Personality Disorder. This therapy is highly useful for other psychological disorders such as substance dependence, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and eating disorders to name a few. At DBT’s core is focus on skills training in four main areas: mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotional regulation and interpersonal effectiveness.
