Emotions are a tricky thing. They can be beautiful, powerful … but not always rational. When they become intense or come on too strong, they are hard to handle. When they’re always intense, it can feel intolerable! DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) — which is different from traditional talk therapy and more targeted than CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy) — can teach complex kids how to handle intense emotions so they don’t always feel so overwhelmed.
