Marsha Linehan developed DBT (Dialectical Behavior therapy) for individuals who are emotionally vulnerable. These are individuals whose automatic nervous system reacts excessively to relatively low levels of stress and takes longer than normal to return to baseline once the stress is removed. Initially used to treat individuals with Borderline Personality Disorder, this program has now expanded into many other areas of treatment. It is my opinion, that the area of TBI treatment is another excellent application of this treatment plan, in conjunction with any others needed. Tonight we will discuss the fundamentals of DBT, and how you can apply the tools to better your life.
This show is a gathering place for anyone seeking recovery from the challenges of life on life's terms. I introduce topics, and survivor's share their experience, strength and hope. We discuss useful tools that have helped us lighten the load, of our journey through recovery.
More will be revealed! Tune in, stop in and call in. This is a "we" recovery program, because it is in the "we," that we find the new "me."
We focus on the four A's of Recovery...Awareness, Acceptance, Action and Adaptation. This is a place for survivor's striving to become thrivers. :)
Some nights we will have a featured guest, and others we will introduce a topic of recovery, encouraging callers to join us in the discussion.
