Dialectical Behavior Therapy is a cognitive behavioral treatment developed by Marsha Linehan to treat specific problems and problem behaviors within a diagnostic group.  DBT was developed primarily for  women diagnosed with borderline personality disorder who exhibit chronic suicidal and parasuicidal behaviors.  In recent years, research has demonstrated that DBT is very effective in treating adolescents who exhibit self injurious and impulsive behaviors, difficulty regulating emotions, and difficulty relating to others.
