This program is designed for individuals over the age of 18 who have difficulties with emotions, relationships, impulsivity, self harm, suicidal behaviours, substance use or other problems that come from difficulties with controlling emotions.
The Life Worth Living program uses Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)
This program covers four core modules, according to Dr Marsha Linehan's structured DBT group format. They include:
- Distress Tolerance
- Emotion Regulation
- Interpersonal Effectiveness
Each module targets a specific area of skills enhancement.
Recent research has consistently demonstrated that DBT helps decrease the frequency and intensity of these problem behaviours as well as decreasing hospital admissions.The Life Worth Living program develops the emotional skills needed to thrive and connect with others.
The following clip is an explanation of DBT. While the video speaks of it's use with adolescents, it is used for adults in exactly the same way, to achieve significant changes.
