Distress Tolerance

This module focuses on the idea that pain and distress are inevitable parts of life and refusing to accept this fact will only cause increased suffering. Distress tolerance teaches techniques intended to help someone endure a crisis without resorting to self-harming behaviors such as attempting suicide or using drugs. The main goal of distress tolerance skills is to help us get through difficult situations without making them worse. These skills teach us to both endure and manage intense negative emotional responses. They include strategies such as self soothing, using distractions, improving the moment, identifying pros and cons of tolerating distress, accepting things as they are, and much more.
