Welcome

The Behav­ioral Research and Ther­apy Clin­ics (BRTC) at the Center for Behavioral Technology is a clin­i­cal research cen­ter focus­ing pri­mar­ily on the devel­op­ment and eval­u­a­tion of psy­chother­a­pies for indi­vid­u­als with severe and chronic per­son­al­ity dis­or­ders.  The research, which has been funded by the National Insti­tute of Health, the Bor­der­line Per­son­al­ity Dis­or­der Research Foun­da­tion, the Ben­nett Fam­ily Foun­da­tion and oth­ers, focuses on the understanding, assess­ment, and treat­ment of sui­ci­dal behav­iors, drug addic­tion and of Bor­der­line Per­son­al­ity Dis­or­der. The pri­mary treat­ment under devel­op­ment at the BRTC is termed Dialec­ti­cal Behav­ior Ther­apy, which is a cog­ni­tive behav­ioral treat­ment devel­oped by Dr. Mar­sha M. Line­han.  The BRTC is a free-standing unit at the Uni­ver­sity of Wash­ing­ton whose funding-to-date has been through research grants and con­sult­ing income gen­er­ated by research staff.  »Read more
