November 19, 2013

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) day treatment can be an important tool in recovery from Borderline Personality Disorder. Clearview Women’s Center Executive Director Michael Roy provides five reasons why.

Venice Beach, CA (PRWEB) November 19, 2013

There are many options when it comes to treatment for Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) and emotional dysregulation. Michael Roy, LCSW, executive director and founder of Clearview Women’s Center in Los Angeles, provides five reasons why Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) day treatment is a good choice for many struggling with BPD symptoms.

1. Needed structure. With six to eight hours of therapy each day, DBT day treatment can provide people struggling with Borderline Personality Disorder additional structure they may need to better manage their symptoms.

2. Middle of the road. Dialectical Behavior Therapy day treatment is most effective for those who don’t require the intensity of a residential BPD treatment environment but who need more support than individual therapy or outpatient BPD treatment.

3. Comfort of home. People who participate in DBT day treatment can remain in the comfort of their own home, or another supportive living environment. In day treatment, they will work on learning to apply the skills they gain to their natural environment.

4 Intensive treatment. Through a combination of individual and group therapy, a DBT day treatment program will provide people with treatment comparable to an inpatient or residential Borderline Personality Disorder program.

5. More support. With DBT day treatment, people struggling with BPD symptoms will get the support they need to recover from BPD and address co-occurring disorders. Therapists and other staff will help to teach and reinforce DBT skills between sessions and after hours through phone coaching.
