For those who do not fit the criteria for our comprehensive Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Program but could benefit from learning these highly effective skills. If you struggle with some impulsivity and take a long time to feel "OK" again after strong or intense emotions, learning these skills can make a difference. You will learn:
Mindfulness Skills, to notice more effectively what is going on inside of and around you in this moment. Distress Tolerance Skills, to take control of lowering the intensity of your emotions so that we don't end up acting. Emotion Regulation Skills, to reduce the intensity of painful emotions and effectively problem solve.
Interpersonal Effectiveness Skills, to identify what we to from relationships and identify effective language for asking, saying no, and setting limits.
How to Walk the Middle Path, to by learning to find the balance between two extremes or opposites and let go of painful "all or nothing" thinking.
You do not need to be in individual therapy to participate. Managing relationships and handling conflict can be challenging when we don’t have the right skills. You will learn how to improve relationship skills, engage in new activities, advocate for yourself, and ask or say no more effectively. Most importantly, you will learn how to take these skills out into the real world.
