About this title


A straightforward introduction for therapists, this video addresses fundamental questions about the nature of borderline personality disorder (BPD), its causes, and how it can effectively be treated with Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). Dr. Linehan begins by presenting clinically relevant features of BPD and describing the underlying causes of the disorder, with an emphasis on biosocial factors. Segments of actual therapy sessions illustrate the emotional dysregulation that characterizes BPD and the intense distress that sufferers experience. Dr. Linehan discusses the development of DBT, which arose out of her realization that traditional treatments were not working with this client population, and clearly lays out its concepts and principles.

In an especially compelling feature, the video includes live interview sessions between Dr. Linehan and Allen J. Frances, Chairman of the DSM-IV Task Force. In these probing dialogues, Dr. Frances asks Dr. Linehan the nuts-and-bolts questions all clinicians want answered about how DBT works and what its advantages are over other therapies.


...very engaging personal style Dr. Linehan displays, whether conversing with a patient, addressing a grand rounds, conducting face-to-face interviews, or talking to a seminar group....These two tapes and their accompanying manuals are highly recommended for their compelling learning value. All mental health professionals, in whatever professional milieu they work, will find them of personal and professional value. ----Psychiatric Services

DBT is the only treatment for BPD to date that has been shown to have efficacy in controlled clinical trials....Plainly, all therapists treating BPD should be knowledgeable about DBT. These videotapes are the most efficient way to get acquainted. They are accompanied by detailed program manuals that summarize key points and provide a guide to the literature. Given the deft interweaving of didactic and clinical material and the clarity of the presentation, these videotapes also could be used to educate patients and their family members. ----Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic
