Just as a point of note, you said you are quoting from Wikipedia, but it is actually WikiWand you are linking to.
The article cited Little, et al. (2018) which states that (emphasis mine):
DBT is based on a biosocial theory of BPD, which posits that the core difficulties seen in this diagnosis stem from the relationship between two factors. Firstly, those diagnosed have a biological dysfunction of the emotion regulation system; and secondly, their environment is invalidating, inhibiting the use of positive behavioural skills and reinforcing the use of less helpful ones (Feigenbaum, 2007; Linehan & Kehrer, 1993)
Feigenbaum (2007) states (again, emphasis mine):
The DBT model assumes that: (i) individuals with BPD lack key interpersonal and self-regulation skills, and (ii) personal and environmental factors may frequently block and/or inhibit the use of behavioural skills or reinforce maladaptive actions.
In psychology, when evaluating the client's environment, you need to look at things from the client's viewpoint, and reading those papers, it highlights that the term maladaptive actions or maladaptive behaviours refers to the consensus that they are as Anestis, et al. (2007) points out:
actions for which cost outweighs benefit [and] is a defining feature of a host of psychological disorders, including depression, eating disorders, and substance abuse disorders (Bornovalova, Lejuez, Daughters, Rosenthal, & Lynch, 2005; Claes, Vandereycken, & Vertommen, 2005; Fischer, Anderson, & Smith, 2004; Joiner, Metalsky, Katz, & Beach, 1999; Keel & Mitchell, 1997)
The client believes that their environment backs up their notion that their behaviours are justified and therefore blocks any move towards more helpful behaviours.
