"Using the Body to Regulate Emotion: Perspectives from DBT"
Clients often experience emotions that are sudden and over- whelming. Being able to use the body to reduce vulnerability to emotion, increase ability to recognize and anticipate emotional responses and regulate emotional response is vital to not being swept away by strong emotions. This workshop will provide therapist with tools to teach their clients to use both in and out of session and be effective in their daily lives.
The truth is that you deserve a treatment that works. One that’s been researched and understood, one that helps you address the emotional reactivity you’re facing head-on. DBT skills can help!
In successfully completing and attending this presentation, participants will be able to:
- Explain two ways the body impacts and influences emotional responses.
- Assist clients in recognizing body sensations as precursors to strong emotions
- Describe three techniques to regulate emotion using the body and implement them with clients in session.
