Teens that are struggling with self harm, negative self talk, struggling to express what they are feeling and needing, emotional flood quickly or shut down and isolate. The main goals of DBT are to teach individuals skills for managing their emotions, improving interpersonal relationships, and creating a life worth living.
When your teenager is sensitive, they tend to become upset quickly, display intense emotional reactions, and struggle to calm down after experiencing strong emotions. It might feel like you're constantly treading carefully or overwhelmed by the fear that each time your teen is triggered, it could lead to self-harm or more severe consequences.
-Increased Self-Awareness: Develop a heightened awareness of thoughts and emotions in the present moment, fostering a deeper understanding of one's inner experiences.
-Reduced Reactivity: Learn to observe and accept thoughts and feelings without judgment, leading to reduced emotional reactivity and impulsive behavior.
2. Distress Tolerance:
-Effective Coping Strategies: Acquire a toolbox of healthy coping mechanisms to manage distressing situations without resorting to harmful behaviors.
-Resilience Building: Develop the ability to tolerate and navigate challenges, enhancing resilience in the face of adversity.
3. Emotion Regulation:
