The question of whether psychotherapy should be viewed as a science or an art form has bedeviled the field for decades. Then Marsha Linehan developed Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, which integrates mindfulness training from Eastern spiritual traditions with an effective therapeutic methodology that’s constantly studied and refined, making it highly successful even with the most challenging clinical populations. Learn about the critical importance and how-to’s of assuring that psychotherapy serves two masters simultaneously--the well-being of our clients and the scientific validation of our methods.
Marsha Linehan, Ph.D., who originated Dialectical Behavior Therapy, is professor of psychology at the University of Washington and director of the Behavioral Research and Therapy Clinics. She’s the author of Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment for Borderline Personality Disorder and Skills Training Manual for Treating Borderline Personality Disorder.
