This study evaluated dialectical behavior therapy for adolescents (DBT-A) versus treatment-as-usual (TAU) within a 6-week partial hospitalization program. The 103 adolescent participants (M age = 15.27 years) were predominately girls (n = 63; 61%) with a variety of primary mental health diagnoses. Results indicated that DBT-A was superior for decreasing symptoms of depression and interpersonal sensitivity, but no statistically significant difference was detected for anxiety or hostility. Implications for treating youth with transdiagnostic identities are discussed.
