Dr. Linehan will discuss her groundbreaking Dialectical Behavior Therapy, which balances acceptance and commitment to change in treating mental illness, distinguishing it from previous standard interventions. Research has shown DBT to be effective for conditions previously considered untreatable, such as borderline personality disorder, which is characterized by impulsivity, interpersonal problems and self-destructive urges.
