Stop. Breathe. Be here now.

Check out this article below!

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/04/world/europe/uk-mindfulness-children-school.html

Society is becoming more open to discussing mental health and combating stigma! The article notes that mindfulness skills are being implemented to help children regulate their emotions more effectively; and we have seen similar success with our DBT work with children and adolescents!

That’s what we do here at PBS, particularly within our comprehensive DBT program. We learn and practice skills related to mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness to help effectively empower kids and families.

Here is a great podcast about Radically Open DBT and its effectiveness for temperaments of over control!

Marielle Berg from Bay Area DBT recently interviewed Neil Howell for a new podcast that explains OC and RO nicely. Marielle does a great job asking the questions to help get to the bones of RO, and Neil answers with humour and humility.
