Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

Monday 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM

with Melisa Lawson

It can be difficult to maintain emotional balance while figuring out just how to navigate through those stressful times. For some, repetitive stressful events and an inability to recover fully from one event before another occurs results in destructive behaviors, such as self-injury and suicide attempts. It takes skills to solve life’s problems while enduring intense emotion.  In DBT, four skills modules are designed to specifically assist individuals in better managing behavioral, emotional, and cognitive instability. Their intent is to help people with problems with anger or the expression with anger, episodic depression, irritability, or anxiety, intense or chaotic relationships, impulsivity, stress, and feelings of emptiness.
