D Dialectical Behavior Therapy (commonly referred to as DBT), was developed by Marsha Linehan as a derivatives of cognitive-behavioral therapy that focuses on increased accepted for clients with substantial sensitivity (like individual diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder). One distinct factor in DBT is the fact that it introduces a forward-looking philosophy to the person in recovery. Individuals who complete DBT sessions should also be going home with a clear aftercare plan. DBT’s infrastructure is based on the knowledge that everything is connected together in countless ways. Utilizing this knowledge in conjunction with additional acceptance ensures a better chance of a successful treatment outcome..
``Radical acceptance rests on letting go of the illusion of control and a willingness to notice and accept things as they are right now, without judging.`` - Marsha M. Linehan
