Dr. Marsha Linehan of Behavioral Tech, LLC. is responsible for developing what is now known as DBT, or Dialectical Behavior Therapy. Originally developed to help those with Borderline Personality Disorder, it is now used to treat a wide range of emotion dysregulation disorders and issues.
If you don't know Marsha's story, [Dr. Marsha Linehan comes out as having Borderline Personality Disorder] she was institutionalized as a young woman and considered to be a psychiatric lost cause. Boy, did she prove the world wrong and pave the way for a hopeful existence for all those who suffer from BPD.
DBT has been a huge part of my recovery. I was so excited to come across these videos of Marsha talking about DBT. Enjoy them! (Thank you very much to the FACES organization for making these available!)
