Abstract

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) is a treatment model, developed by Marsha Linehan, incorporating Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), assertiveness training and Eastern meditative practices (Linehan, 1993). Originally formulated to reduce suicidality and deliberate self-harming behaviour in those diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), it became the first empirically supported treatment for this complex clinical population (Linehan et al., 1991). Since first conceptualised, this treatment model has been adopted and adapted across diverse settings and populations. This article evolved from a need to evaluate the evidence base in order to ensure that the authors were promoting evidence-based practice within their clinical practice at an adult acute inpatient unit. Specifically, it was aimed to assist with reviewing the content of a current transdiagnostic ward-based ‘Living Skills’ group that was incorporating elements of the original DBT model
