Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a serious mental illness that is identified by the inability to manage emotions effectively.
Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a treatment for BPD with well-documented efficiency. Standard DBT addresses the following 5 functions: (1) increasing behavioral capacities, (2) improving motivation for skillful behavior (through contingency management and reduction of interfering emotions and cognitions), (3) assuring generalization of gains to the natural environment, (4) structuring the treatment environment it reinforces functional rather than dysfunctional behaviors, and (5) enhancing therapist capacities and motivation to treat patients effectively.
Combining digital technology with the expertise of healthcare professionals in the mental health area helps achieve better results.
Aware of this, Medtep has developed Medtep DBT for patients and professionals, an innovative digital health solution based on the Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) by Dr. Marsha M. Linehan to help individuals with Borderline Personality Disorder.
It provides an easy-to-use communication channel between therapists and their patients, making clinical treatment more efficient. Therapists can monitor patients, check warning signs and offer an ongoing and personalized care through new strategies.
