Who Would Benefit from the Course?

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) has been designed to ease the effects of depression, anxiety, stress, inner chaos, moodiness, impulsiveness, and self-destructiveness, as well as helping us to improve our relationships. It is also used to treat substance abuse, PTSD, and eating disorders.

With this in mind, the course is perfect for those affected by the various conditions above to study, as well as for therapists wishing to add to their existing skills profile. However, the ability to understand and change our emotions, gain improved interpersonal relationships, handle stressful situations better, and be more mindful every day, are traits we can all use.
