Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) was originally developed to help people struggling with the symptoms of borderline personality disorder (BPD). Many people with BPD also have PTSD, and vice versa. Although people with PTSD and BPD have different symptoms, they share some of the same problems, such as difficulty managing emotions, interpersonal problems, and a high risk of impulsive behavior. In this training, we explore the origin of DBT and the application to working with clients who are diagnosed with the co-morbid conditions of BPD and PTSD or other trauma (sexual).
