Without practical skills to deal with stress, emotions, and interpersonal conflict, many people live a life of pain and turbulent relationships. Although they are doing the best they can, their old survival strategies destroy relationships and keep them stuck. This frustrating “dialectic” needs to be resolved before the person can move forward and change their life. This class explores DBT, a skill-based treatment protocol for a wide range of mental health problems, including suicidality, borderline personality disorder, depression, anxiety, and many others.
