DBT Problem Solving Skills

Translation missing: en.products.product.view_full_details

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) problem solving is an emotion regulation skill that helps clients identify their problems and be more effective in getting the results they want. Depending on the situation they’re dealing with, they can apply different techniques that resolve conflict and bring clarity afterward.

The DBT Problem Solving Skills handout provides clients with a simple explanation of how this skill works. It provides seven steps they can follow when approaching a problem they’re dealing with. This includes identifying the current problem, checking the facts, identifying the goal, and brainstorming possible solutions.

Using this handout helps kids and teens practice resolving problems in a more manageable way and encourages accountability. While your child is reading the handout, feel free to recommend some goals they may set, such as improving relationships with their friends or siblings, or achieving success in school.

This handout can be paired with our DBT Problem Solving worksheets for additional application of this skill.
