From following your instincts and asking for help to taking your family’s temperature and practicing “Wise Mind,” today’s podcast episode offers a heartfelt and authentic glimpse into one family’s journey with Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). DBT is an intensive therapeutic approach teaching social emotional and resilience skills that can help adolescents struggling with emotion regulation, excessive worrying, withdrawing from friends, self-harm and/or suicidality. Kimm Angel, a Marketing Associate at CHC and mom of two daughters, encourages listeners first and foremost to listen to their gut: “No one knows your child better than you do. You’re not overreacting and you are a good parent.” Tune in today to learn more about how DBT can help your family heal.
