DBT skills have shown great efficacy in helping decrease self-injurious, suicidal and other behaviors associated with Borderline Personality Disorder. Preliminary research has shown promising results in adapting these skills to the treatment of eating disorders. The use of mindfulness, emotion regulation, and distress tolerance skills has shown to decrease episodes of binging, purging and restricting. Mindfulness has also shown to decrease restrictive eating, increase overall BMI and flexibility with food.
