BUILDING A LIFE WORTH LIVING - DBT SKILLS: CONTINUING PRACTISE

In order for you to do this ten week course, you will need to have completed the 4 week ‘Introduction to DBT Skills’ course.

This is not Dialectical Behavioural Therapy but is a skills-based group. If your mental health worker thinks that you would benefit from DB Therapy, then they should be able to provide this through your Community Mental Health Team.

This is a peer led course that looks at how DBT skills can practically help people who have trouble understanding and managing overwhelming emotions. This course is suitable for people with recognized personality difficulties or those people who struggle with the following:

  • Intense negative emotions
  • Impulsive behaviours
  • Feelings of emptiness
  • Mood swings
  • Wanting to hurt yourself or regularly finding yourself in unhealthy relationships.

Shared experience, validation, mindfulness and distress tolerance exercises will form a basis for every session.
