Learning Coping Skills

 

Rivka* had been struggling in the past and had even contemplated suicide, but she instead took the huge step of moving to Israel - without her family, but with several suitcases of emotional baggage.

 

While she was growing up, she felt that she didn’t fit into her community or get along with her family, resulting in feelings of alienation and loneliness. In her new environment in Israel, she found herself feeling disconnected and anxious about her ability to make friends.

 

Rivka joined a Machon Dvir DBT Skills Group in Bet Shemesh, led by local DBT expert Heather Moshel LCSW. Attending weekly group meetings, she learned how to become more aware of her feelings and how to reframe her own attitudes. She found the mindfulness skills really helpful, as they helped her to shift her focus away from the negative thoughts that often crept into her mind in social situations. As part of her treatment at Machon Dvir, Rivka was able to call Heather for coaching whenever she was experiencing difficulties.

 

After six months, Rivka is now off her medication and she has found herself a job. She used to think that no one was interested in her, but how she has more self-confidence, and she is even learning to cope with her family’s expectations. She now only goes to see her therapist when she needs to – once a month or so.

 

What is DBT

 

DBT is a tried and tested methodology known as Dialectical Behavior Therapy. DBT skills have been proven to be helpful for those struggling with interpersonal difficulties, impulsive, addictive & self-harming behavior, depression, anxiety and dysregulated eating.

Machon Dvir will be running a new DBT Skills Group for adult women in Bet Shemesh on Thursday mornings, teaching life-changing techniques of Mindfulness, Emotion Regulation, Distress Tolerance & Interpersonal Skills.
