Following on from the successful ‘Relearn’ and ‘Rewind’ modules comes the third module with even more skills. This is available to you all, whether or not we have taught you before.
Would you walk for miles rather than go through the embarrassment of paying for your bus ticket with a twenty pound note? Would you babysit for a friend even though it was very inconvenient, because you didn’t want to upset that person? Would you hurl abuse at a street vendor because they were ‘in your face’? Are you easily triggered by situations that other adults seem to take in their stride?
Come and learn how to maintain boundaries to keep yourself and others emotionally safe. This eight-week course is brought to you by experts in personality disorders – one qualified DBT therapist and one service user in the final stages of recovery. Once again, we will spend the first 2 sessions look at what it means to be ‘mindful’ (i.e. not avoiding the present, no matter how uncomfortable it is). The subsequent six sessions will explore skills for requesting and refusing things without anyone getting hurt. There will be a 9th session for celebration & clients’ feedback to the facilitators. (This course is a pilot project, and may be extended if successful.)
