Calling your therapist in times of crisis to get individualized skills coaching is a critical component of your DBT recovery plan. For some people, learning to use the telephone to diffuse a crisis is an important learning objective. For others, learning to use the telephone less and using other distress tolerance skills instead is a sign of progress. Wherever you are on this continuum, your individual therapist will work with you to develop a telephone coaching plan that meets your individual needs and treatment goals.
Telephone Coaching is an integral part of the Center’s DBT program. There are no additional fees for this service.
