The COVID-19 pandemic is causing lots of people to experience distress. This might be because of fear of getting sick, or it could be financial stress or the impact of being in closer than usual quarters with the folks that we live with. Whatever the reason that you’re distressed, dialectical behaviour therapy can help to equip you with the skills to cope. This course is all about finding ways to reduce your distress – using your body as well as your brain. It helps you to develop your capacity to manage distress better.
The fact is, we can struggle to manage intense emotions in our day to day lives when we can’t cope with difficult interpersonal interactions, overwhelming events or invalidation from loved ones, medics and employers. We can end up in crisis, and that can cause us to behave in ways that cause us shame or create practical problems in our lives. While we are often not responsible for causing the initial events, we still have to deal with our reactions to the situation, our emotions and behaviour. This course equips you with DBT skills to manage distressing situations without derailing your life or relationships.
