DBT DEAR MAN Worksheet

Translation missing: en.products.product.view_full_details

DEAR MAN in DBT refers to interpersonal effectiveness skills designed to help clients improve their communication and social skills. Dealing with interpersonal relationships can be challenging when you are also dealing with unstable emotions. Clients will learn how to navigate uncomfortable social situations effectively by addressing their needs and wants while keeping their relationships healthy.

The DBT DEAR MAN Worksheet includes two worksheet activities that let clients reflect on a situation where interpersonal skills were needed. One of the sheets asks them to create a script to help them be assertive with their needs while trying to reach a goal in the interaction. Page two is a reflection sheet that allows for evaluation of the effectiveness of the DEAR MAN skill.

Using these worksheets gives kids and teens an opportunity to practice communicating well in a way that’s less stressful and more empowering. After answering the worksheets, you can role-play a scenario with your child where they can apply the skill, and provide helpful feedback on areas they need to improve in.

These worksheets can be used together with our DBT DEAR MAN Handout, which provides a summary of each step in the skill.
