DBT SKILLS

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an evidence-based treatment that focuses on producing significant and long-lasting improvement by decreasing the frequency and severity of destructive behaviors, increasing personal strengths and translating healthy coping skills into a person’s everyday life. DBT is a type of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) that emphasizes practical skills training under the following categories (among other components):

  • Emotion Regulation

  • Distress Tolerance

  • Interpersonal Effectiveness

  • Mindfulness

DBT SKILLS IN THE WORKPLACE

Everyone can benefit from learning DBT Skills. Learning these essential tools can help employees notice anxiety, worry, anger, and other symptoms of stress without automatically reacting to them!

Stress has a contagion effect. If you ever notice employees on edge, venting or calling out sick more often, it may be time to seek support! I teach practical DBT Skills and give employees the tools to pause, check in, identify emotions, regulate emotions and stress responses while consciously make healthier decisions.
