Dialectical means not being black and white but seeing multiple truths-some people find this very hard and can be quite extreme in their thinking and their behaviour. Dialectical behaviour therapy seeks to help people find the ‘middle way’ or synthesis in order to develop more balanced thinking and behaviour.
