Sample text

Immediately the client takes the tablets, he begins to experience calmness and a release from his distress. Sometime later a friend finds the client and calls an ambulance, which transports the client to hospital. On admission to hospital, the client was assessed by a doctor, had a drip inserted and is transferred to a medical ward where he receives a psychiatric evaluation. Some hours later, he receives a visit from his irate spouse, misses an appointment with his therapist and has his medication changed.

Other criteria refer to covert behaviours of the client, such as identity disturbance. Distinctively, DBT argues that the successful reduction or removal of the behaviours that constitute the diagnosis removes the diagnosis itself. A behavioural approach argues that: “A self or personality is at best a repertoire of behaviour imparted by an organized set of contingencies” (Skinner, 1974, p. 167). Thus, from a behavioural perspective, personality, and hence personality disorder, is only a series of overt and covert behaviours.
