DBT for Health Care Practitioners

Are you a health care practitioner working with clients who present with challenges around regulating their emotions?  Are you afraid to diagnose them with Borderline Personality Disorder BPD? or Emotion Regulation Disorder ERD?  Are you afraid of stigmatizing them?  Would it be helpful to know that most often persons who finally get a diagnosis of ERD/BPD actually feel relieved to know that there is something wrong?  Sure, initial reactions might be challenging however if managed with care and validation and providing the right kind of help your clients can thrive.

Clients with a wide variety of challenges including BPD/ERD and also bipolar, addiction, anxiety, depression, ADHD can benefit from DBT.
