Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) was originally developed by Marsha Linehan as a way to help individuals with suicidal ideation. Later on, it became an evidence-based treatment for treating individuals with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). However, in order for this model to be effective with this population, it is crucial that helping professionals learn how to appropriately implement DBT. During this course, Mary Bennett, LCSW, offers an overview of the DBT model in how it applies to treat individuals with BPD. Participants will gain a better understanding of how to diagnose and treat BPD through the DBT lens.
