Four Tips for DBT Therapists About TIBs


Psychē, PLLC Vanderbilt University

Key Points

  1. Therapist barriers to addressing TIB may be fears of making the patient worse, a desire to maintain a certain image, training in different psychotherapy models, a high tolerance for discomfort and ignoring or invalidating their feelings.
  2. If you wait for a good time to address TIB, you will never do it.
  3. The discomfort in the short term may pay off with preserving the relationship or even the patient’s life in the long term.
