Typically, but not exclusively, for patients with Borderline Personality Disorder, DBT has multiple clinical trials demonstrating its effectiveness. DBT California offers comprehensive DBT programs for adults with intensively/comprehensively trained staff. For a program to call itself DBT it must have all of the following components:
- Individual Therapy
- Group Skills Training
- In-between session coaching
- DBT therapist weekly consultation meeting
Lynn McFarr, Ph.D. started the first comprehensive DBT program in the Los Angeles area in the late 1990s.
