The House of DBT
The House of DBT is a metaphor that is used to describe the stages of treatment in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). When clients come into treatment, they often have the experience of being in “hell” or the basement of the house. With DBT, people find that they can get out of the basement, up the stairs into two floors of the house until they reach the roof or joy through radical acceptance.
In this 18 minute video, Marsha Linehan, Ph.D., ABPP, the treatment developer of DBT speaks directly to clients. Dr. Linehan explains the stages of DBT and describes the journey up the steps, out of the basement and through the house to the roof in a way that is personable and compassionate.
The House of DBT can be used by clients to understand the stages of treatment or by therapists who wish to describe the stages of DBT to other professionals, clients, family members or potential clients.
