Comprehensive DBT Skills List

Reduce your stress. Find your personal DBT skills and practice

The DBT Skills List is a collection of so-called "skills", tools, or capabilities to be able to handle high stress, stressful situations and/ or an emotional crisis. This collection of skills has been compiled by those affected and supporters. In doing so, we have summarised the knowledge we have gained from various DBT therapy phases, personal experiences, guidebooks, and various internet resources from over +30 websites (see Resources).

The listed ideas have been tested by people with borderline personality disorder and people living with depression.

The information and skills presented are intended to help you and support you in stressful situations in your daily life. Of course, not every skill will do everyone the same good. The DBT Skills LIST is more a collection of ideas and suggestions. Especially when you have no more ideas or don't know what could help to handle your emotions in a crisis. You can look here.
