Do DBT!

DBT Creator Marsha M. Linehan

The creator of the Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Marsha M. Linehan, PhD, ABPP is a Professor Emeritus of Psychology and Director Emeritus of the Behavioral Research and Therapy Clinics.

Dr. Cho and DBT Team

Dr. Cho, the path he walk, is the path for pain and suffering; the DBT and Marsha Linehan’s philosophy, he believed, are the non-detachable companion of his walk to save people from their suffering.

We all are suffering from our innate limitation as human beings.

The only people who are able to confront this inescapable fact and lessen our pain and suffering is ourselves.

Only we could balance our minds.

DBT is the truthful psychotherapy that helps us balance our minds even within the storm of pain and suffering.

Yong Cho, Ph.D.ㅣChief Psychologist, the Tree Group​ / DBT Center of Korea

우리의 생애에 다시 올 수 없을 소중한 인연에 따른 Day Retreat
마음을 정결하게 가다듬는 나를 위한 시간
마인드풀니스 명상과 깨닭음의 말씀을 통해 우리의 본성을 찾아가는 ‘가을의 비추어짐’

DBT Experiential Class 고통감내스킬 두번째 주

조용범ㅣYong Cho, Ph.D.​

일상의 위기에서 생존하기와 마인드풀니스

우리 일상에서 경험하는 크고 작은 위기를 마인드풀하게 관찰하는 시간을 갖도록 합니다. 얼마나 많은 일들이, 얼마나 많은 사건들이 우리의 감정에 다가오는지, 있는 그대로, 그 감정을 잊으려고도 애써 괜찮아 하려고도 하지 말고, 그대로 무판단적인 마음으로 관찰하고, 기술해봅니다. 이 위기의 순간에 느껴지는 행동충동을 있는 그대로 관찰하고, 행동충동에 따르는 것의 장단점을 합리적 마음으로 구별해 봅니다. 그리고 충동적 행동 대신 지혜로운 마음의 소리에 따라 마인드풀한 행동을 해 봅니다.

클래스 소개


2008년 다이어렉티컬 행동치료(DBT)의 개발자인 마샤 리네한 박사는 조용범 대표의 초청으로 한국에 방한하여 DBT 워크숍을 진행하였습니다. 이후 한국 전문가들이 DBT를 직접 체험할 수 있도록 하는 것이 바람직하다는 리네한 박사의 의견을 바탕으로 한국 DBT 센터/더트리그룹은 전문가를 위한 DBT Experiential Class를 런칭하였습니다.
  

그 동안 많은 전문가들이 본 클래스를 통해 DBT 그룹에서 일어나는 실제 상황들을 간접적으로 경험하는 기회를 가졌습니다. 올해부터는 전문가를 위한 DBT 클래스를 상설화 하여 학기별로 등록할 수 있도록 진행할 예정입니다. DBT Experiential Class를 통해 배운 스킬을 자신의 실제 어려움과 상황에 적용해 나갈 수 있는 뜻깊은 시간이 되기를 바랍니다.
