    Carers, Family & Friends

    If you are a supporter, carer, family member, partner or friend of someone who has been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, post traumatic stress disorder and/or extreme emotional dysregulation, C-DBT is a program that can provide you with support and practical skills to effectively embrace compassion and wisdom each day to fully experience and participate in life!  

    Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) is a type of behavioural therapy. DBT's main goals are to teach individuals how to live in the moment, develop healthy ways to cope with stress, regulate emotions, and improve their relationships with others.

    • Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Middle Path, Emotion Regulation & Interpersonal skills.
    • Skills that enhance compassion, coping and the support of loved ones.
    • How emotional sensitivity and overwhelm can impact relationships.

    “The C-DBT program is based on the work of Perry Hoffman, Alan Fruzzetti, Marsha Linehan and Shari Manning which was first published in 1999. The Australian DBT Institute delivered our first C-DBT Skills Training in 2004 to complement our DBT programs and to support carers, partners, family and friends of individuals in our DBT programs. Today’s version of our C-DBT Skills Training Program has been further enhanced to include the lived experience of individuals with extreme emotions and their carers as well as current research.

    C-DBT acknowledges that sharing a life with a loved one with emotional sensitivity and extreme emotions can be delightful, as well as challenging and overwhelming. As carers, partners, family and friends we can have experiences/moments of emotional vulnerability and sensitivity ourselves. C-DBT is a program for individuals who want to continue supporting loved ones and can see the benefit from becoming more skilful themselves."
