Introduction to applying DBT for emotional resilience

Go Back


When the going gets tough in therapy, emotions often appear to be the problem. They either take over or are avoided. DBT has a wealth of skills and wisdom for managing emotions. However, emotions also have the potential to be the solution. The energy of suppressed anger can be what the person sunk in depression needs; the fury of the angry person could be masking pain that needs to be addressed. Using DBT skills to help the individual to get their emotions to work for them, as well as to stop them working against them, is the way to build true emotional resilience.

This will be an interactive workshop where you will be invited to explore new skills and approaches using your own clinical examples. It will cover emotional over-expression; emotional avoidance; how to avoid vulnerability to emotions and how to promote emotional resilience.
