Dialectical Behavior Therapy can benefit people who struggle with overwhelming emotions and self-destructive behaviors, as well as people generally looking to gain skills to improve their mood, daily functioning, and relationships.
Distress tolerance skills are at the heart of DBT, and they're the reason that most people who seek DBT seek it.
In a nutshell, distress tolerance means getting through crisis situations—including intense emotions and their accompanying urges—without engaging in behaviors that make things even worse!
Improving distress tolerance skills can help us decrease a wide range of unwanted behaviors, including but not limited to: substance misuse, lashing out at others, disordered eating, self-harm, and suicidal ideation.
Together we will learn the DBT distress tolerance skills and practice them, building a foundation for future DBT modules. (Students decide whether to enroll in the next module, Emotion Regulation, at the end of Distress Tolerance.)
If you are interested in enrolling in the DBT Distress Tolerance Module, contact me for more information and to schedule an informational phone call.
Please note that in order to enroll in DBT, you must be currently seeing an outpatient therapist, though that person need not be working on DBT with you.
