Sarah Sproson, a London based clinical psychologist, explains why Dialectical Behaviour Therapy is designed for use as a medium to long term treatment option. Chelsea Psychology Clinic are a group of London psychologists and psychiatrists offering private psychological therapy and psychiatry treatment from their premises across central London and Chelsea. The private therapy sessions cover the following areas: – Acceptance & Commitment Therapy – Cognitive Analytic Therapy – Cognitive-behavioural Therapy – Couples Therapy – Dialectical-behaviour Therapy – Mentalisation Based Treatment – Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy – Schema Therapy https://www.thechelseapsychologyclinic.com
Well, this was designed as a long-term therapy, but it is also therapy that’s sort of very driven by certain principles. So there are certain skills training elements that could be shortened down and used as kind of packages in their own right. So I think I would be suggesting that people would be engaging with this in a medium to a long-term way.
