Developed by Melanie Harned, PhD, the DBT Prolonged Exposure protocol is an adapted version of Prolonged Exposure Therapy, which uses in-vivo and imaginal exposure plus processing as the treatment strategies.

The treatment is designed to treat PTSD among suicidal, self-injuring and multi-diagnostic adolescents and adults receiving Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). DBT and DBT PE protocol treatment uses a stage-based approach to comprehensively address the full range of problems experienced by high-risk, severe, and complex clients with PTSD.
