Regulating Emotions

What is Dialectical-Behavioural Therapy (DBT)?

Dialectical-behavioural therapy combines cognitive-behavioural to help you learn to (1) cope with intense, distressing emotions; and (2) develop healthy ways to manage distress when feeling overwhelmed. Each session will present a selection of skills in mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness. You are expected to practice these skills between sessions and apply to your own life experiences. You might benefit from this group if you are feeling overwhelmed by emotions; having difficulty managing emotions; use problematic coping strategies (e.g. self-harm, substance use); have chaotic interpersonal relationships; feel chronically empty or unsure about yourself; or feel that life is constantly overwhelming.

Developing Your Compassionate Mind - uwaterloo.ca/campus-wellness/events

Why practice self-compassion?

Through research, self-compassion has been linked to positive well-being in the reduction of negative mind states, including anxiety, depression, perfectionism and shame. In addition, it has been associated with improved emotional coping and greater resilience.  

Having compassion for oneself is really no different than having compassion for others. In this workshop, you will be given the opportunity to explore self-compassion by participating in reflection and writing exercises, meditations, and open discussions.
