Eight DBT Microskills Video Presentations

to help you take what you've learned a step further

The microskills in these interactive video presentations are at the very heart of DBT. While learning theory is useful, learning how to actually do DBT is what will allow you to get the treatment outcomes you are looking for. To help, these essential, in-the-trenches tools address the key factors that keep emotionally dysregulated clients from fully engaging in the therapeutic process.

Closing Thoughts

A Note from Our Publisher

The most rewarding aspects of my work with clients have been to witness their emotional pain diminish, to give them tools to better face distress, and to help them shift from emotion-driven behaviors to a life based in values.

Often, the greatest challenge is the client's commitment to avoidance-all the ways they've learned to numb, suppress, run, withdraw, surrender, or attack in the face of pain. This commitment to avoidance not only makes the pain worse, but makes the client resist positive change processes in therapy.

DBT is such an invaluable therapy because it targets avoidance with the dialectic of validation vs. change. The client's pain and avoidance are strongly validated by the therapist, while the client is supported in learning key skills for facing distress, downregulating strong emotions, and replacing emotion-driven behavior with new, more effective responses.

There is a continuous balancing process between acknowledging how much a client hurts and how hard therapy is vs. the many specific changes necessary to save the client's life.

It is my hope and expectation that these DBT presentations, training materials, and client resources will enhance each therapist's skill at targeting and reducing the human suffering created by emotion dysregulation.
