How To: Group Therapy for Cutting

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is an effective form of treatment for self-harm issues such as cutting. DBT is an evidenced-based treatment that aids its patients to reshape their viewpoints about themselves and their worlds.

As a counselor working with a clinical population, I see a lot of self-injurious behavior. I have been training in a theory called DBT, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, in order to begin running a group for girls who cut. Cutting is not necessarily understood by parents as each generation has its own issues. The purpose of this video is to inform the viewers of the efficacy of the theory and to direct other counselors to these materials for more information.

I recently heard myself criticizing Rachel Hollis. I thought, what could she possibly share about self-care or mental health if she doesn’t have the credentials to back up her claims. I am ashamed to admit that, but hey- I ate my words once I listened to her audio book. I feel like my learning lesson helped to keep my pride in check and remember to continually put humility first. This is for anyone who needs a boost in inspiration and wants to get pumped up about yourself! Love Love Love!!!
