Marsha Linehan & DBT clinician

When I teach my graduate students—who work with complex, difficult-to-treat individuals at high risk for suicide—I always remind them that they can choose whether to look out for themselves or to look out for their clients, but they cannot always do both. If they want to look out for themselves at a possible cost to their clients, I remind them that they are in the wrong profession.

I dedicate this book to all those who have found the courage to carry on this work at a possible cost to themselves.…..”

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.
