Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) Skills Group

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) is very helpful for those who experience lots of extreme ups and downs in their life. It is most helpful for people who have unhelpful coping strategies, such as self-harm. DBT is broken up into three modules:

  • Distress tolerance: how to tolerate pain in difficult situations, not change it
  • Interpersonal effectiveness: how to ask for what you want and say no while maintaining self-respect and relationships with others
  • Emotion regulation: how to change emotions that you want to change

Mindfulness is an important skill that is taught throughout DBT. It is the practise of being fully aware and present in this one moment.

N.B. participants need to have an individual DBT therapist they see at least once per month, and a Ramsay Clinic Berkeley Vale Psychiatrist they see every 2 months (or as recommended), while they are in the DBT Skills Group. Prior to commencement, an assessment is conducted to ensure suitability.
