In reply to DBT for severe depression?, posted by Roslynn on May 10, 2010, at 13:35:42

I have taken a few DBT classes and it is pretty helpful for most conditions. I also have major depression among other things. Some of the emotional regulation stuff can really help same with the containment and mindfulness exercises. Emotional regulation and containment skills help you recognize your triggers before you end up in a full blown depression or spiral. Mindfulness helps you stay in the here and now and to focus on one thing and helps you also to be more aware of what you are feeling. That is the skill they usually teach you first. I feel these skills have helped me quite a bit. You can always try it and see if you like it. I hope this helps.
