Lecture Overview

Teaching a person with borderline personality disorder to regulate their emotions is a very important part of their recovery. Following on from Geoff Ahern's lecture, 'What is Dialectical Behaviour Therapy?', this session looks at a range of practical skills within DBT that a person is taught for managing their emotions.

I enjoyed this video from a mental health perspective and gained a little more knowledge as they are so many conditions, diseases, mental health activity and just in general and I can use this to learn more about this disorder and be able to handle myself with a distressed patient as stated before for basic examples.
