Dialectical Behavior Therapy – DBT
Clarify Counseling provides DBT Therapy – Dialectical Behavior Therapy – in Greenville, SC. DBT Therapy is a cognitive-behavioral therapy published in 1993 by Dr Marsha M. Linehan Ph. D at the University of Washington in Seattle. Research for DBT started 17 years prior to publication as Dr. Linehan began developing a therapy to treat chronically suicidal females. About 80% of this population met criteria for Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), which is typified by a client’s emotional and behavioral extremes. DBT is the only therapy shown by extensive clinical research studies to be effective in treating Borderline Personality Disorder (i.e. a significant portion of the participants meeting criteria at the beginning of the studies no longer met criteria after one year of treatment).
