Description

Mental Health 101: a workshop series from Therapy Is Not a Dirty Word

Join us for an insightful and engaging discussion as we explore Marsha Linehan's four pillars of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). For those in clinical practice, we'll discuss how you can best use these practices with clients. Participants joining the discussion to learn the nature of DBT skills and how to apply these practices to your life. We'll enjoy a light brunch, and engage in the following skills:

Interpersonal Effectiveness:

  • understanding your needs, and how to effectively communicate them to others
  • meeting the needs of others without totally compromising yourself
  • repairing relationships, maintaining boundaries, and saying no

Mindfulness

  • practical tips to bring you back to the present moment
  • how awareness and slowing down will help you identify what you need in that moment
  • how symptoms of anxiety and depression can be lessened and relieved

Distress Tolerance:

  • techniques to self-soothe when emotions are high in intensity
  • explore crisis survival skills, radical acceptance, and how to respond appropriately to life's challenges
  • practical advice on making wiser decisions despite being in the heat of the moment

Emotion Regulation:

  • how emotions function, and their purpose
  • managing your emotions, and learning how to ride them out
  • reacting versus responding to internal and external stimuli


Our hope is to continue to educate the community on best mental health practices with this workshop series. We hope to teach, discuss, and help you better understand how to use these skills in your own lives. This one-time workshop should not be a replacement for having a relationship with a licensed mental health professional.
