This study’s objective was to explore the effectiveness of DBT in routine public mental health settings. This was a randomized controlled trial to examine if DBT is more effective than TAU in assisting patients with BPD and to reduce suicidal behaviours. This research also explores the effectiveness of cost and clinical of applying dialectical behaviour therapy over treatment as usual in a routine Australian public mental health service.
High levels of functional impairments and negative clinical outcomes are associated with BPD. They consist of high utilization of psychiatric services, high co-morbidity with other serious psychiatric conditions, serious self-harm and high suicide rate. Therefore research and interventions are required to assist people with BPD. Forty-three public mental health patients with BPD (84 female, 6 male) from the ages of 18 and 58 years were given DBT for six months and patient outcomes were compared to those patients receiving TAU. They met the BPD DSM-IV criteria and all subjects had no less that one extra DSM Axis 1 co-morbid diagnosis most regularly depressive disorders (77%), substance abuse disorders (51%), PTSD (23%), bipolar affective disorder (6%), schizophrenia (4%), and other anxiety disorders …show more content…

The purpose of conducting this research was to explore how significantly positive effects twelve months of dialectical behaviour therapy has on parasuicidal behaviour and impulsivity in a group of BPD female patients with (n=31) and without (n=27) substance abuse. Evidence shows that borderline personality disorder is a serious mental illness and therefore it is very crucial to advance and analyze treatment interventions to ensure they have significant improvements on people suffering from BPD.
Randomized controlled trial was used to conduct this study. Initially 64 patients were brought from 92 clinics that were referred from addiction and psychiatric services. Then a minimization method was used to ensure comparability of the two treatment conditions on factors, including age, severity of symptomology, severity of drugs and alcohol problems, and severity of social problems. Six subjects dropped out from the intention-to-treat analysis after the randomization stage, because they did not agree with the result of randomization. Fifty-eight women with BPD who were aged between 18 and 65 years were randomly given either 12 weeks of DBT (n=27) or TAU
