Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a growing field, with word spreading fast about its high success rates. This type of cognitive-behavioral therapy helps get down to the root of the problem. Since this will differ for every patient, no two DBT treatments are the same.

Dr. Linehan and her colleagues published the first randomized controlled trial of dialectical behavior therapy in 1991. They saw vast improvements for women with BPD, who also engaged in suicidal behaviors. Previously, this clinical population was looked at as untreatable.
