The New Year can be tough, especially hot on the heels of a pandemic.
As a psychotherapist I have noticed a worrying uptick in the number of clients in crisis, and so I want to share some crisis management skills. These were invented by Marsha Linehan who created a type of therapy called DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy).
If you know of anyone in crisis, and you need to clarify any of these, please reach out and I can send you the DBT Crisis Skills booklet for free. And if you know of anyone who is in danger, please take them to the Emergency Room of your nearest hospital, or call 911 so the emergency services can help with this.
