Description

People who struggle to regulate their intense emotional experiences often feel like they are at the mercy of reactive coping patterns. It can seem like these emotional storms hijack their behaviour, take control of their thinking, and hurt their relationships with other people and themselves. Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) provides concepts and skills to help people have more choices, become more emotionally calm, and be more present in their lives. This workshop explores key concepts and useful skills such as tolerating distress, managing emotions, and enhancing interpersonal communication. Participants will discover which populations can benefit the most from DBT, and gain an understanding of concepts, strategies, and tools that can be applied to their work.
