Focus on the present happenings within you and around you.
Accept the situation and empower yourself to cope with it.
Identify and manage negative emotions to avoid mood disturbances.
Listen and communicate effectively to build a healthy relationship.
Consciously taking the effort to spend time with yourself and introspect is an essential aspect of dialectical behavioural therapy. The recognition of self and one’s power over the surroundings is an insight for self-identity.
Being proud of yourself, feeling worthy of the applause for achievements, knowing your potential requires self-belief. DBT guides you towards your achievements through the path of introspection.
Fear of Change
Change cannot be avoided, it has to be adapted to. Preparing your mind for major changes in life makes the transition easier and emotionally calm. Accepting the change, if sudden, can be overwhelming but avoiding emotional distress is possible through DBT techniques.
Repetitive thoughts are to be identified, countered and reframed to strike emotional balance. Learn techniques to control your thoughts and replace them with positive ones through mindfulness. Reduce the effects of overthinking on your body and mind.
Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) is a type of talking therapy. It’s based on cognitive behavioural therapy, but is specially adapted for people who feel emotions intensely. The aim of DBT is to help understand and accept difficult feelings.
Dialectical behaviour therapy is a comprehensive, evidence-based treatment devised especially for borderline personality disorder (BPD). It is now widely used for various disorders.
The main focus of Dialectical Behavior Therapy, or DBT for short, is to provide clients with a set of skills to help them manage painful and distressing emotions, in turn helping them to decrease conflict in their relationships and live a life they feel is worth living.
