Emotional dysregulation, typical of that which occurs with traumatic experience, frequently accompanies depression, alcohol and drug overuse, violence, and suicide in young people. By understanding simple DBT concepts and the use of exercises based on these concepts, school counselors can help students and their parents develop the strategies and skills necessary to reduce stress reactivity, balance emotions, solve problems, increase positive feelings, and become more effective in relationships.  Exercises that increase stress tolerance skills and foster the use of executive functioning are the focus of this workshop.  These tools have proven effective in reducing suicidal ideation and self-harming tendencies.
