Notice: DBT was created by Marsha Linehan as a treatment approach for people who have Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). DBT has been effective in helping people with various other mental and behavioral health needs. This one day workshop provides a brief overview of DBT, however, it would be impossible to cover all of the research and information developed by Marsha Linehan.

Recreational therapists can implement several aspects of DBT to help patients.
