APT is the leading independent provider of DBT training courses in the UK and Ireland and we can bring the training to your own organisation, or you can attend the course as an individual.Linehan hypothesises that the disorder is a consequence of an emotionally vulnerable individual growing up within a particular set of environmental circumstances which she refers to as the 'Invalidating Environment'.An 'emotionally vulnerable' person in this sense is someone whose autonomic nervous system reacts excessively to relatively low levels of stress and takes longer than normal to return to baseline once the stress is removed.CBT techniques that worked for those emotional issues were a good starting point to test on the emotionally dysregulated population she wanted to help.She also identified how mindfulness skills developed by practices such as meditation, often seen in religious or spiritual practices, may benefit these clients.
