the functions they serve
skills to manage them
reduce our vulnerabilities
build positive emotional experiences
Dialectical Behaviour Therapy
Who is it for?
Designed for the difficult to treat, severe and chronic client with multiple diagnoses
Posits that some people due to invalidation, trauma and biological factors unknown react abnormally to emotional stimulation
Leads to crisis strewn lives and distress, which the individual attempts to avoid with unhealthy behaviours.
Their level of arousal goes up more quickly; peaks at a higher level and takes more time to return to baseline.
What is D.B.T?
Is the art of holding two or more things in balance that are in conflict, contrary or mismatched and yet they are both real and true.
Synthesizing information, situations or emotions when they seem to be in opposition.
Things aren't necessarily simply right or wrong, black or white.
I can like you, but dislike a behaviour or action that you do.
What is DBT?
Balancing competing needs
So what does it consist of?
Learning skills in four major areas
Living fully present in the moment
Taking a step back and looking in
Observing, describing, participating
Learning to bear pain skillfully
Improving our relationships
You Made It!
Does It Work?
DBT has been proven to be useful for people coping with the following:
Depression and mood disorders
Drug and alcohol addictions
Other personality disorders
What does this look like?
What is DBT?
wants and needs
feelings and thoughts
recreation and responsibilities
self interests and the interests of others
skill enhancement and self-acceptance
DBT teaches us four sets of skills for tolerating (dealing with, getting through, accepting) the distressing events and activities in our lives.
Distracting - Wise Mind ACCEPTS
Improving the Moment
Thinking of Pros and Cons
Stop and Step Back (from the situation, in your mind)
Take a Breath
Pull Back - Put in some Perspective
Practice what works
Pushing Away (Leave it for a while)
Thoughts (think of other things)
What if they take a wrong turn?
Mistakes are normal!
How we handle them is an opportunity
Reinforce the learning (examine the mistake)
Give them the choice
Support them in making the right decisions
Remember that what we say isn't as important as how we say it!
Back this way.......
Learning about our emotions,
without becoming emotional
Learning how to:
recognize the associated physical symptoms
describe the emotion without feeling it
stop the typical behaviours associated with those emotions
not judge emotions
let go of emotions
triggers to our emotions
treat Physical iLlness
avoid mood Altering drugs
Moving from 'me' to 'we'.
learn self awareness
Validate the other person
Easy manner with humour
Stick to values
lack of skill
Of these, I would say that lack of skill is the number one factor.
This is why I believe that the
is so much more important than the
we say isn't as important as
we say it.
Focus on the relationship
Be true to yourself
Learning how to effectively navigate life
