“Dialectical" means integration of opposites and DBT treatment is a powerful cognitive-behavioural approach, which helps people integrate the seemingly opposite strategies of acceptance and change.
Rather than being counselling focused, DBT focuses on learning skills to manage emotions. While well known for its usefulness as a treatment for personality disorders, DBT is also helpful for mood disorders and for changing behaviour patterns such as self-harm, suicide ideation and substance abuse. It has also shown good outcomes for people with eating disorders and acquired brain injury (ABI).
