What if all that stood on the way of you and great relationships were skills? Would you take the time to learn them? Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) was developed by Marsha Linehan for the treatment of Borderline Personality Disorder, but it’s really like a life manual for how to have great relationships. It teaches you what to do when you’re having an emotional melt down, how to avoid getting there, mindfulness, and how to have better friendships, casual personal interactions, as well as romantic partnerships. Who doesn’t need that class? DBT should be required starting in middle school. It would make all our lives easier.
This class covers mindfulness, distress tolerance (what to do in a crisis), emotional regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness.
The weekly coaching calls (Wednesdays at 6:30 EST) focus on practicing your social skills, helping you to feel safe inside your body and understand your emotions, reviewing what you did so that you can make improvements, and making sure you understand how to use the skills. You’ll have lots of support and feedback to help you grow.
