I agree with you and I like the way you explained Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. DBT main focus is to help better the quality of life of BPD patients. Patients learn how to tolerate and rise above their crises. They learn to respond thoughtfully to their emotional experiences. This therapy helps them to interact in a productive way with their peers. As you mentioned they guide patients without placing judgement on them. DBT tackles BPD (Borderline Personality Disorder) symptoms by teaching skills that patients can use in their everyday life. The classes, individual sessions, real-life application, and phone sessions provide the patients a great support system. The different trainings teach the patients to notice their maladaptive thoughts
Research has demonstrated that an effective approach to Borderline-personality Disorder is Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). This form of treatment was an adaption of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). This form of therapy is designed to target the emotion dysregulation present in BPD and to reduce impulsive behaviors (Paris, 2010). In Joe’s case we have seen that at times he is not able to control his behavior. It was present as a teen when he was incapable of completing school task, abusive relationship with his wife and displaying aggression when being hospitalized. DBT focuses on empathic responses to distress that provide validation for the inner experience of patients (Paris, 2010). This particular form of therapy consists of individual

Dialectical behavior therapy is a principle-based treatment applied to diversely severe and multi-problem presentation around college campuses (Pistorello, Fruzzetti, MacLane, Gallop, & Iverson, 2012, p. 983). The group sessions also teach developmental skills relevant to college students for chronically suicidal individuals who benefits more from comprehensive treatment. These groups help students learn specific psychological skills like mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, emotion regulation, and distress tolerance.

The Dialectical Behavior Therapy for Wellness and Recovery is a great resource for boarding my knowledge in understanding how to implement the techniques in a group setting.

Bein (2014) uses a metaphor to indicate the process of regulation by highlighting the ways a thermostat works, so a working thermostat regulates temperature as needed and keeps the environment comfortable. This would signify the ability to regulate moods, and behaviors effectively.
The patient must feel comfortable with their thereapist for it to be an effective treatment. Some people with BPD can be easier to treat than others. A person with BPD can easily be triggered if they don 't feel comfortable 1. Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) focuses on the concept of mindfulness, or paying attention to the present emotion. DBT teaches skills to control intense emotions, reduce self-destructive behavior, manage distress, and improve relationships.
In the study done by Drossel, Fisher, & Mercer (2011), a Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills training manual (DBT Skills) was used for caregivers of patients with dementia, mainly in community clinical settings. This was designed because of the lack of effective therapy options currently in healthcare for elderly abuse. Researchers studied the DBT Skills training manual to examine if its effect would not only help at-risk caregivers to decrease the harm towards elderly patients with dementia, but also improve quality of life for the patients. There were 24 caregivers (19 women and five men) and most were family members. The DBT Skills training entailed one introductory meeting and eight weekly sessions. Results of the study show that skills
Phase One (Sessions 1 through 3) • The session 1 and 2 consists of the assessment of the client’s clinical problems and background information. Questions relate to her clinical problems, including (a) the nature of her problems (depression and difficulty with making decisions), (b) reason of seeking psychotherapy, and (c) previous attempts to deal with the problems.

Speakers can be contacted through community channels to search out success stories in order to ease their discomfort and apprehension with mental illness.
Psychotherapy is as effective as medication in treating depression and is more effective than medication in preventing relapse (DeRubeis, Siegle, & Hollon, 2008). Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) pertains to a class of interventions whose premise is that mental disorders and psychological distress are maintained by cognitive factors. Beck (1970) and Ellis (1962), were the pioneers Cognitive Behavioral Therapy approach of the core premise of holds that maladaptive cognitions contribute to the maintenance of emotional distress and behavioral problems. A review of meta-analytic studies by Hofmann, Asnaani, Vonk, Sawyer, and Fang (2012) examined the efficacy of CBT and it demonstrated that this treatment has been used for a wide range of psychological problems such as cannabis and nicotine dependence, schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders, depression, anxiety disorders, bulimia, insomnia, personality disorders, stress management and more studies being conducted to study its effectiveness.

I used Dialectic Behavior Therapy (DBT) techniques with some of my clients. I was not trained in this therapy but was familiar with the idea of being in the here-and-now. This technique worked for my schizophrenic client by keeping her focused on what was happening each day by writing in a journal and distracting her from what she thought had been happening in her past. I was able to use Art Therapy with the client I had with PTSD, depression, and suicidal thoughts. I had one client on probation who was ordered to be in counseling before she could get off of probation.
Introduction Throughout the treatment process, it is vitally important that the therapist work with the client on the reassessment of treatment goals. There are numerous reasons for reassessment to occur; the chief reason is that client’s needs continuously change. The goal, objective, situation, all could have changed drastically since the start. For instance, if the client was hospitalized within the year, reassessment to examine what the effect that situation caused and the clients functioning, is needed. There may be new problems, new goals, or new interventions needed.

It is believed the most influential model in treatment methods of depression has been Aaron Beck’s cognitive theory of depression (Beck 1976). Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is the most widely practised branch of psychotherapy. It was developed in the seventies by Professor Aaron T Beck. He concluded that in his treatment of depression, a combination of cognitive and behaviour therapies were more effective than psychoanalysis. By using clinical observation of depressed patients Beck was able to come to the conclusion that patients had a negative cognitive triad where they had a negative view of themselves, the world and their future.
