Coping Skills 4 life (Dialectical Behavior Therapy or DBT)

    CopingSkills4Life is a way to learn how to regulate how you feel if you are stressed. A lot of people don’t know they are stressed until they develop problems sleeping, or feeling anxious all the time. People try ways of coping that don’t work very well such as drinking alcohol or eating late at night. Signs of stress are things like problems sleeping, over thinking things, racing thoughts that never stop even when ready for bed.

Does any of this sound like you?

  • Moods are up and down, can’t seem to stay level and irritable.
  • Blow up, quick to anger and it is out of proportion to what happened
  • Relationships are rocky , you can’t seem to hold on to friends because of “issues” of trust
  • So much going on you can’t tolerate even the littlest noise or crowd of people
  • You don’t feel heard by others and no one knows how you really feel (because you don’t tell anyone until you blow up at them)
  • Exhausted even though you sleep there is no energy  or motivation to do anything. you are pre-occupied by worrying about things that are going on.
  • End up either drinking too much or using something else to excess so that you can feel better
  • This  usual way of soothing yourself is not exactly helpful for maintaining health and it is not working any more.
