a Dialectical Behaviour Program
a Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) skills-based program
to assist clients to
tolerate intense emotions
manage self-destructive behaviour
DBT is an evidenced based treatment for Borderline Personality Disorder sufferers. However, DBT skills are also extremely useful for clients in assisting in the management of impulsive behaviours, mood changes, emotional dysregulation, anxiety, depression and urges to use substances, food, gambling etc. to avoid or get rid of uncomfortable or intense emotions. DBT gives clients concrete skills and strategies to manage disruptive emotional experiences.
See our Previous News page for further information on DBT
or see the Workshop page for the program brochure.
DBT has been found to be most effective when working in a group setting, in conjunction with individual counselling sessions and telephone contact. We are currently organising to commence a group early in the new year with the lead facilitator being Ciara Togher and Co-Facilitator, Phil Cutting.
If you would like to be part of this exciting development in Bunbury, or if you would like to have a telephone chat with Ciara, please use the contact form.
