DBT GIVE Skill Worksheet

Translation missing: en.products.product.view_full_details

The DBT GIVE skill encompasses (being) Gentle, (acting) Interested, Validating, and using an Easy manner. The main goal of this skill is to build and maintain relationships through positive interactions, which can improve relationships and create happiness. Forming healthy relationships can support good mental health.

The DBT GIVE Skill Worksheet offers two worksheet activities for clients to enhance their understanding and application of the GIVE skills. One activity lets them think of a current or future interaction where they can brainstorm ways in which to apply these skills. Additionally, they’ll be able to write down two validating statements they can say to the other person.

These worksheets provide kids and teens a structured means of reflecting on their social interactions and an opportunity to gain insight into their behaviors. Caring adults can model the skills by engaging in a discussion with their child while keeping the conversation light-hearted and having a good laugh together.

Our DBT GIVE Skill handout is a helpful add-on to these worksheets, and provides a visually appealing summary of this skill.
