ACCEPTS is a distress tolerance skill with the acronym of Activities, Contributing, Comparisons, Emotions, Pushing Away, Thoughts, and Sensations. ACCEPTS includes positive distracting skills that limit disruptive behaviors and emotional outbursts, which can be learned over time and improve quality of life.

The DBT ACCEPTS Handout includes 7 distracting skill sets and engaging activities for each category. Clients can immerse themselves in these activities to distract from distressing situations until they pass.

This handout helps clients learn positive distracting skills in dealing with a distressing situation which helps them build emotional resilience and strength. Practicing this skill will also help them increase their coping and decision-making skills.

This is best to pair with the DBT ACCEPTS worksheet to help users jot down activities they can engage in.
