Why do C-DBT?
If you are, 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!
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.
The main goals of C-DBT Skills Training are to: ·
- provide carers, friends, family members and/or partners with the skills that enhance compassion, coping and the support of loved ones.
- provide an overview of the skills and resources taught in DBT programs throughout Australia.
- learn about how emotional sensitivity and overwhelm impact relationships
- acquire effective relationship, crisis management and self-management skills.
