Introduction to Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Workshop
Skillful Living
September 2020
Intercontinental Hotel
Amman – Jordan


In the course of everyday life, we often face situations resulting in anger, sadness, fear, and frustration.


What would I benefit from this workshop

and why is it important to learn DBT?


How is it different than

other therapies?

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an evidenced-based therapy for

Suicide, Non-Suicidal Self-Injury (NSSI), Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), Addictions and Mood Disorders.

It combines accepting patients and teaching them to change through a continual process of synthesis.

DBT provides guidance and tools to

• Stay calm and present in difficult situations using mindfulness skills.
• Effectively manage emotions using emotional regulation.
• Enrich personal and professional relationships by using interpersonal skills.
• Enhance physical well-being using distress tolerance skills.
• Increase joy and freedom in life by radically accepting.
