Pain and distress are a part of life. We all need to learn how to manage crisis situations effectively. Distress Tolerance skills provide tools you can fall back on to ride out the wave of emotions and survive a crisis moment.
The behavioral skills learned in this course is based on a model of treatment called Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). DBT is a broad-based cognitive-behavioral treatment originally developed for chronically suicidal individuals diagnosed with borderline personality disorder (BPD). DBT has demonstrated its effectiveness for a wide range of problems around emotional control. The skills training alone is showing benefits for a variety of populations.
