One of the most frequent requests I receive from family members and friends is, "Teach me the skills!"
Living with and loving someone who has been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder (BPD) can sometimes be extraordinarily difficult. When one family member is suffering with intense and ever-changing emotions, many family members are thrown into the chaos that results from unrelenting crises.
Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) isn't just for the person with the problem; it's for anyone who has a desire to cope more effectively with the stress, anxiety, and frustration.
Learning just a few DBT skills can help you feel more relaxed, in control of your own reactions, and mindful of your emotions. If your son, daughter, or spouse is learning dialectical behavior therapy with a trained mental health professional then you can begin to share a unique therapeutic language that will lead to greater understanding, trust, and healing.
Beginning Tuesday, May 30, 2017 at 7:00 pm Eastern/4:00 pm Pacific, I'll be offering a 12-week online DBT skills class designed just for family members and friends. The cost is just three monthly payments of $99 each per person.
Each week you will learn:
• The DBT skills from all four modules: Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Interpersonal Effectiveness, and Emotion Regulation
• Ways to validate your family member
• How behaviors are inadvertently reinforced
• Collaborative problem-solving skills
• How to de-escalate arguments and prevent misunderstandings
• Practice dialectical thinking to build empathy
• How to establish limits when necessary
• Create your own life worth living
Why not make a life-changing investment in improving your relationship today?
Registration is limited to just 16 individuals. The last day to sign-up for this class is May 30, 2017. If you need to miss a class, that's okay. All classes will be recorded for future listening.
