What is Distress Tolerance?


Distress Tolerance is one of four modules that make up Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). Distress tolerance skills help individuals tolerate and survive crisis situations without making things worse (crisis survival skills), especially when one cannot make the situation better right away. Distress tolerance skills also teach individuals how to use acceptance as a tool to reduce suffering and build a life worth living (reality acceptance skills). Additionally, this group will cover a set of skills to utilize when the crisis one is dealing with is addiction.
