Case Study: Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

I used to work with a client who spent a lot of time fighting their emotions. They were in a situation where the triggers to their negative emotions were constant and for a period of time unavoidable. Using the Rational/Emotional/Wise mind concepts from DBT, as well as some anxiety controlling techniques that brought mindfulness to this person’s life, they were able to first accept that their emotions were valid. Once this was done and internalized, they were able to find ways to tolerate their situation and then even accept it. The result was lowered anxiety and depression and a more positive outlook for their future.
