This chapter provides a summary of a landmark study on borderline personality disorder. Is dialectical behavior therapy more effective than treatment offered by nonbehavioral psychotherapy experts in reducing suicidal behaviors and treating borderline personality disorder? Starting with that question, it describes the basics of the study, including funding, study location, who was studied, how many patients, study design, study intervention, follow-up, endpoints, results, and criticism and limitations. The chapter briefly reviews other relevant studies and information, discusses implications, and concludes with a relevant clinical case.
