Dialectical Behavioral Therapy is a skills-based curriculum that focuses on
four main skill groups:
Paying attention on purpose
Managing one’s emotions instead of allowing emotions to manage the person
Strengthening resilience and capacities to cope through challenges
Learning how to ask for what we need or say no without losing relationships
While originally developed and researched within populations struggling with Borderline Personality Disorder, DBT skills can help just about anyone feel they have the tools to cope and feel better about their lives.
