DBT Mindfulness Training

Comprehensive research-based Introduction to Mindfulness.

Perhaps you have been wondering about mindfulness. Or maybe you are curious about the differences between mindfulness skills and mindfulness practice. What is essential to think about are the three core skills of mindfulness: the notion of observing, paying attention, and being non-judgmental.

There are lots of different ways to practice mindfulness. You can do mindfulness in meditation; you can do it in exercises such as yoga or classical martial arts. Even contemplative prayer is a kind of mindfulness.

What I did in developing the DBT Mindfulness skills was I took what I had learned from my own teachers who taught me mindfulness, and then I tried to figure out what exactly were they telling me to do, because I found out that a lot of people can't meditate. They either don't want to meditate or they're too distressed to meditate. I also thought: Well, mindfulness isn't exactly meditation. That's just one way of practicing a Mindfulness skill.

Dr. Marsha Linehan, founder of Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)

Marsha Linehan then structured the exact skills that she was taught, and then she broke it down into specific behavioural steps, in other words, specific steps anyone can do. And that is what DBT Mindfulness skills are. If you put them all together again into one package, they become a mindfulness practice.

Mindfulness itself has an enormous number of positive outcomes, and the positive outcomes have to do with helping people have a sense of themselves more than they had before. Mindfulness also has research-proven biological effects, which is to say that they make you feel better physically.

Another fabulous value of mindfulness practice is that it helps you focus attention on things that are very important to you. You can attend to yourself when those things are important. You can focus on what it is that you need to do next. And in other words, one of the great things about mindfulness skills is that they teach you how to focus your own mind.

Introduction to DBT Mindfulness

Mindfulness-based stress management techniques have been proven effective in the treatment of stress- and anxiety-based disorders. Mindfulness is a powerful way of living that is accessible to anyone, regardless of your beliefs. A secular approach to mindfulness, DBT Mindfulness teaches people how to slow down and savor life and cultivate peace in relationships through a disciplined yet open awareness of the present moment. Ultimately people learn how to experience life more fully and learn not just to accept the reality of their experience but also change it for the real betterment of themselves and others around them by learning how to live in their daily lives instead of letting their lives run them.

Boiling down to what is most important is to realize we only have "just this one moment". That is all that exists. Nothing exists than just this one moment.

Dr. Marsha Linehan

Mindfulness sounds simple, but most people go through life with a tunnel vision-like experience. We generally tune out to our actual experiences and get distracted by thoughts of those occurrences. Most of us are so conditioned to engage with our thoughts rather than the present moment that we can easily lose sight of what is happening right in front of us.
