Please also note that the videos from DBT-RU represent skills from Dialectical Behavioral Therapy’s group of skills called Crisis Survival Skills. These skills, in short, are meant to soothe high levels of emotions that threaten to lead to unhelpful actions. They are largely meant to be short-term solutions aimed at preventing a crisis moment from worsening. Therapists, please seek clinical supervision for more information. Individuals, please seek mental health support for personalized care.
