The Biosocial theory behind DBT holds that individuals with emotion regulation disorders have emotional vulnerability and a deficit in their ability to regulate emotions. The emotion regulation deficit is maintained by an ongoing transaction in the environment, characterized by invalidating responses. Invalidating responses include the indiscriminate rejection of private emotional experiences, the punishment of emotional displays, but with intermittent reinforcement of escalation, and the consistent communication that emotional problems are easier to solve than they really are.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy is a precise treatment for serious emotion regulation disorders that is supported by solid clinical research.
