Our Board Certified Programs
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a type of treatment that decades of research has shown to be effective for those who struggle with difficulty controlling moods and may have self harm and/or suicidal thoughts or actions. It provides relief from intense or rapidly changing moods, trauma symptoms, attention-deficits, addictions, eating disorders, and other conditions that present with symptoms of difficulty experiencing or controlling emotions and difficulty with relationships or impulse control.
Transformation Behavioral Health offers adolescent and adult DBT programs that are DBT-Linehan Board of Certification, Certified Programs (TM). When you are seeking DBT treatment, this distinction matters. A DBT-Linehan Board Certified Program means that the program has undergone a rigorous assessment process of their qualifications, knowledge, and competency in delivery of DBT. This seal of certification is the only way to ensure that the place you are choosing for treatment is actually providing the treatment you are choosing, in the manner that research has shown it to be effective. A therapist or organization that advertises they provide DBT, yet is not Linehan Board Certified, is not guaranteed to be providing the highest standard of DBT and may be providing only DBT-like treatment. Research has shown that this may actually lead to a deterioration or worsening of the condition (Koerner et al, 2007), and can have devastating consequences for someone who has severe or complex symptoms. If you are investing the time and work to improve the quality of life of yourself or a loved one, it makes sense to choose the highest quality of treatment that is delivered in a manner that is supported by research. If you have an adolescent who is exhibiting serious, out-of-control, or suicidal behaviors, it is wise to seek out treatment that has the highest probability of decreasing these symptoms.
