Dialectical Behavior Therapy in the Treatment of Eating Disorders


Presented by:

Liz McCabe, PhD
Mallory Beatty, LCSW 

Moderator: Marsha Marcus, PhD


Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), a treatment initially developed to treat borderline personality disorder has been adapted to treat other complex or refractory disorders, including substance abuse and eating disorders.  This presentation will provide an introduction to DBT concepts and treatment structure, and a description of how DBT has been integrated across COPE inpatient and ambulatory levels of care.  The rationale for using DBT with eating disorder patients and examples of its utility will be discussed. Finally, a videotaped interview with a patient will be used to illustrate particular aspects of DBT that are relevant to eating disorders treatment. 

Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of the grand rounds, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the two components of the biosocial theory underpinning DBT.
  2. Describe how eating disorder behaviors are conceptualized in the DBT treatment hierarchy.
  3. Cite at least one example of how DBT is useful in the treatment of eating disorders.
