Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Are you ready to try Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to overcome a pattern of unstable relationships and reactive emotional outbursts? Perhaps you have landed in the psychiatric hospital due to erratic behavior. Perhaps you have reached a point where things just are not working for you and you are ready to make a change. Control these symptoms: Frantic attempts to prevent abandonment. Unstable relationships - alternating between "I love you" and "I hate you". Impulsive behavior such as binge eating, reckless driving, spending , substance use. Self-mutilation or suicidal thoughts/behavior. Mood swings. Anger that is out of control or inappropriate. DBT is a specialized program that emphasizes learning and practicing skills to improve the ability to maintain appropriate behavior despite intense stressors. One telling moment was when a patient in the hospital voiced, "If I knew this on Tuesday, I wouldn't be here today." This is a true DBT program that involves skills groups and individual therapy. The group will meet on Tuesday evenings from 6-8 p.m. Individual sessions will be held on Saturdays. Participants are expected to maintain weekly attendance of both the group and the individual session.
