42 Individual Therapy The First Phase of Treatment The DBT practitioner spends as long as is necessary in the beginning phase of treatment, orienting the adolescent to DBT and gaining the adolescent’s commitment to the work of the treatment. This early phase of treatment may resemble “treatment as usual” in that the practitioner uses many interpersonal skills to develop trust and a working connection with the adolescent. In these early sessions, the practitioner focuses more on acceptance and validation than on change, although the practitioner will look for opportunities to introduce change strategies when they will be effective.

The research done on comprehensive DBT does not clearly indicate which of the modalities, if used independently, are effective. Many practitioners and programs begin by offering a skills training group. As practitioners receive more training in DBT philosophy and skills, they may begin to provide individual therapy for those clients who are in skills training. Other practices may decide that any client who is at risk for suicidality or self-­harm must be in both individual DBT and skills training.

To be genuinely effective, DBT practitioners must be willing and able to maintain professional boundaries at the same time as they share relevant experiences about how DBT skills have been helpful in their own lives. DBT treatment begins with the individual practitioner, who is responsible for orienting the adolescent to the process of treatment. This includes acknowledging the adolescent’s hesitation and reluctance, validating her concerns, and beginning to explain the treatment framework and how it can help her.
