Every therapy operates with a certain set of basic assumptions. These are sets of hypothesis’, facts or statements that are taken for granted. They are not always articulated, but they are acted upon as rules and guidelines for treatment.
DBT is no different. It too operates with a certain set of assumptions. In DBT, however, the assumptions are clearly articulated.
What do you think of these assumptions? Are any of them contradictions? Can these assumptions still be true, despite contradiction? Do these assumptions fit with your experience of therapy.
