Description

DBT Skills in Schools

Dialectical Behavior Therapy is a psychotherapeutic approach designed to help people think more flexibly, manage distressing emotions and situations, and improve their interpersonal relationships and communication. It uses mnemonics and brief exercises to teach specific skills and strategies, making it perfect for use in schools and classrooms. This in-service will help school nurses and other school staff to:

  • Understand the underlying philosophy of Dialectical Behavior Therapy
  • Encourage students to develop strategies for managing distressing emotions
  • Teach students specific skills to improve their interpersonal effectiveness
  • Implement these techniques in their schools.
