Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) is a psychological therapy for people struggling to cope with self-harming behaviour or suicidal thoughts and those diagnosed with a personality disorder. DBT combines standard cognitive behavioural techniques with concepts derived from Buddhist meditative practice.

The theory behind the approach is that some people are prone to react in a more intense and out-of-the-ordinary manner toward certain emotional situations, primarily those found in romantic, family and friend relationships. DBT theory suggests that some people's arousal levels in such situations can increase far more quickly than the average person's, attain a higher level of emotional stimulation, and take a significant amount of time to return to baseline arousal levels.
