DBT Clinic

DBT at The Resilience Centre

The Resilience Centre has a new Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) Clinic.

DBT is a treatment that was originally developed by Dr Marsha Linehan for individuals who meet the diagnostic criteria for Borderine Personlaity Disorder (BPD). Recent research on this therapy has demonstrated that DBT is not only useful for those with BPD but also for other challenges that stem from emotional dysregulation such as:

  • Complex and challenging behaviours
  • Difficulty maintaining relationships
  • Impulsivity and/or addictive behaviours
  • Frequent suicidal thoughts and/or urges to self harm

The research findings have consistently shown that DBT helps decrease the frequency and intensity of these behaviours, as well as helping to decrease hospital admissions.
