Radically-Open-DBT (RO-DBT) is a transdiagnostic treatment, which is based on neurobiological research and behavioural principles. RO-DBT was initially developed for individuals with treatment resistant depression and over-controlled personality disorder (OCPD), Avoidant PD and Schizoid PD. Preliminary outcome trials have also indicated some effectiveness for individual with anorexia nervosa.
