DBT Week at Brookhaven

Friday, 11 January 2013 20:34 

Brookhaven Retreat follows a 12-week schedule that uses weekly themes to incorporate the practice of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) as a powerful healing tool.

This week, Brookhaven Retreat finishes Mindfulness Week, during which women practice being present in the moment. Women cultivate nonjudgmental awareness of emotions, sensations and feelings, which allows them to work with these thoughts on the path to wellness.

Mindfulness has been proven to be a powerful tool toward improving mental health. A Massachusetts General-led study reported that after eight weeks of mindfulness training, participants showed changes in brain structure in areas associated with awareness, compassion, stress and introspection.

Mindfulness reduces anxiety and increases self-compassion, a large part of the healing and recovery process. The DBT skills learned during Brookhaven Retreat’s 12-week cycle are designed to offer women experience with some of the tools that help sustain mental wellness and increase wellbeing and quality of life. Next week, Brookhaven Retreat will move into Describe Your Emotions week.
