Key Principles of Dialectical Behaviour Therapy


In this informative talk, Dr. Ella Brent outlines core concepts of Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), an approach which directly addresses suicidal and self-harming behaviours. Dr. Brent outlines the state of mind which contributes to impulsive behaviours, and the vicious cycle that ensues, and how DBT may be applied to help clients to survive and tolerate difficult feelings. Dr. Brent briefly discusses the practical DBT skills which can be employed in helping clients manage their internal experiences.
