|R-Hi, I’m Raha
N-Hi, I’m Nathalie,
R- and I’m Raha. We’re two of the therapists who run the Dialectical Behaviour Therapy Program here at The Mindfulness Clinic. We usually call the program DBT because ‘Dialectical Behavior Therapy’ is kind of a mouthful.
N- If you’re watching this, you might be wondering if our program could be helpful for you!
R- It could be very helpful if you experience intense emotions that are difficult for you to control, have problems with you anger, struggle with binge eating, drug or alcohol use, self-harm, or suicidal urges.
N: Have you been told that you have Borderline Personality Disorder, or aspects of it? If so, our DBT program could be very helpful for you.
R-If you complete our DBT program, you can expect to feel better and be more in control of yourself and your life. What might this look like for you?
N: When you have a crisis, you’ll be better at getting through it without making things worse.
R: If you feel really distressed, you’ll be able to calm yourself down.
N: If you complete our DBT program, you will know how to keep yourself safe when you feel a strong urge to do something dangerous or harmful.
R: As well, if you complete our DBT program, you will be better able to deal with painful or confusing emotions.
N: We can also help you learn to talk to people so you can get what you need more of the time. That way, dealing with other people will be less frustrating and and more rewarding for you.
R: People who finish the DBT program say that they can manage their emotions better, can cope with crises, and can get along better with others.
N- We can help you to have less suffering in your life. We can help you move forward in your life so that you feel that your life is rewarding, satisfying, and worth living.
R: Our DBT program has different parts to it. One part is the DBT skills training group. If you want to learn more about that, click on the link, for the Skills Group, under this video.
N: Another part of the DBT program is individual DBT therapy and phone coaching. Learn more about this by clicking the link, for individual therapy, under this video.
