DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) is an integrative behavioral therapy with elements of Zen Buddhism (mindfulness) and dialectical philosophy. This therapy was developed to intervene with individuals diagnosed as borderline personality disorder (BPD). Later, it was reformulated by Linehan (1993) within the Biosocial Theory as a conjunction between emotional vulnerability and disabling behaviors close to the individual. DBT is an evidence-based treatment with studies that support its effectiveness in double-blind, controlled clinical trials. In this case, the model was compared with the usual therapies or commonly used in populations diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, addiction disorder and eating disorders; the results showed that behaviors such as suicide attempts, drug use, excessive intake and purging (bulimia) decreased in numbers compared to other therapies normally used in the United States. There are several recent studies that demonstrate how patients diagnosed with BPD have decreased suicide attempts during treatment with BPD, number of hospitalizations, substance use and / or abuse and interpersonal problems.

Framed in the contextual behavioral field of psychotherapies, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), focuses on how deficits in emotional regulation skills and their interaction with a context called disabling or poorly functional to learn new and flexible behaviors, has a central role in the emergence and maintenance of problematic behaviors defined as problematic behaviors, that is: impulsive behaviors, self-harm, interpersonal problems, identity problems and lack of problem solving skills. So far, this treatment has been applied and validated in patients from different countries - USA, Germany, Korea and Argentina - in different languages - English, German, Spanish, Korean and with four comorbidities: bipolar disorders, eating disorders, impulse control and substance use.

 

DBT, is it only for impulsive or emotionally dysregulated patients?

 

Just as there is a fully validated version, as it was previously able to develop, work with Borderline Personality Disorder (or DRE, Emotional Deregulation), a variant of the model was also generated and validated DBT Linehan Standard called RO DBT or radically open DBT. RO DBT was generated to work with people who were diagnosed with disorders such as: anorexic nerve, refractory depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, among other diagnoses whose main behaviors are They defend the "control" of emotions, ending in rigid, not very flexible behaviors of the various changes that occur in the contexts in which the patient interacts.

 

DBT as a prevention tool: is it possible to prevent deregulation AND emotional control?

Framed in contextual behavioral therapies, Behavioral Dialectic Therapy (DBT), focuses on how deficits in emotional regulation skills and their interaction with a context called disabling or poorly functional to learn new and flexible behaviors, has a central role emergence and maintenance of problematic behaviors defined as impulsive behaviors, cuts, personal injury, interpersonal problems, attention problems and lack of problem solving skills. DBT, with its derivative applied in the school context, is commonly used to work specifically with an educated teen audience. It is worth mentioning that it is a manual developed for the acquisition of emotional problem solving skills, which includes a program for the development of behavioral skills of emotional regulation, interpersonal effectiveness, mindfulness, tolerance to discomfort and dialectical thinking.

The use of DBT skills and strategies has been studied recently in schools. There, a significant reduction in pre-post-test emotional stress levels among first year high school students in the city of Philadelphia (Pennsylvania, USA). In another study, Mazza and Handson applied only two DBT modules (mindfulness and tolerance to discomfort) at a school in the city of Campo de Batalha, Washington state. Of these students, 80% said they wanted to use these skills and 90% thought they would be useful to others and therefore could pass them on.

 

Can you work with post-intervention strategies with DBT?

 

Miller and Mazza (2018) carried out a school intervention protocol called in English “Prevention, intervention and post-intervention of suicide at school” to work with vulnerable adolescents who participated in or Aware of the suicide of colleagues or publicly recognized people. The purpose of this intervention is to interrupt the effect of contagion and imitation of that conduct, using the tools originally developed in the "Suicide Protocol" (Linehan, 1993). It demonstrated its effectiveness not only as an educational tool, but also as a facilitator of cognitive flexibility, understanding suicide as a conduct designed to escape a problem or emotion while providing more effective tools for students to deal with, making them qualified and effective. The goal is to get them to have "a life worth living" in the short, medium and long term.
