Dialectical Behaviour Therapy

Connect with experienced allied health clincians anywhere in Australia!

Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) is a type of psychotherapy that was developed to treat individuals with borderline personality disorder (BPD), but has since been adapted to treat a range of mental health disorders. DBT is based on the idea that some people are more emotionally sensitive than others, and have difficulty regulating their emotions, leading to impulsive and self-destructive behaviours.

DBT is effective because it teaches individuals a range of skills to manage their emotions, including mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness. These skills help individuals to identify and change negative patterns of thinking and behaviour, and to cope with stressful or triggering situations in healthier ways.

DBT can be delivered online through teletherapy or virtual therapy sessions, making it accessible to individuals who may not have access to in-person therapy sessions. Online DBT can be delivered through video conferencing or through self-guided modules or computerized programs.

DBT is used to treat a range of mental health disorders, including:

  1. Borderline personality disorder (BPD).
  2. Depression and other mood disorders.
  3. Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
  4. Eating disorders, such as bulimia nervosa and binge-eating disorder.
  5. Substance use disorders.
  6. Anxiety disorders, such as generalized anxiety disorder and social anxiety disorder.

In conclusion, DBT is a highly effective form of psychotherapy that teaches individuals a range of skills to manage their emotions and cope with stressful situations. It can be delivered online through teletherapy or virtual therapy sessions, making it accessible to individuals who may not have access to in-person therapy sessions. DBT is used to treat a range of mental health disorders, including BPD, mood disorders, PTSD, eating disorders, substance use disorders, and anxiety disorders.
