My son gets DBT with his IEP plan. For people that don’t know that is, it is Dialectical Behavior Therapy. He’s been learning DBT skills since he’s 2 years old. I’m beyond grateful for this in our life. I wanted to share one of the DBT skills with you because, I know in everyday life most people aren’t taught these skills and right now it is more than ever important to have radical acceptance to what we are currently presented with.
Definition of Radical acceptance is when you stop fighting reality, stop responding with impulsive or destructive behaviors when things aren't going the way you want them to, and let go of bitterness that may be keeping you trapped in a cycle of suffering.
Is this easy, NO! Is it possible, ABSOLUTELY! My son who had extreme uncontrollable meltdowns has learned to think through the situation, let go of what he can’t control and accept what is going on in his environment. If he can, you can as well!
If you need to talk, I am here! Message or text me!
