Emotionally dysregulated clients: Supporting Families - 3. Window of Tolerance

Canada · CPD courses & CPD points · Health Professionals

Drawing from Daniel Siegel’s model of interpersonal psychoneurobiology, we have found that the DBT terms of Emotion Mind, Rational Mind, and Wise Mind are not as readily understood as the underlying physiological systems of arousal.

In this video the body’s physical arousal system is clearly presented. It is important for practitioners to understand that emotional intensity is not the same as emotional dysregulation.

However, with a well-established volume control system in place, a person can withstand even very high and very low levels of emotional intensity without becoming dysregulated. This is called the window of tolerance (the Wise Mind in DBT).
