DBT What Makes It Hard To Regulate Emotions Worksheet

Translation missing: en.products.product.view_full_details

Regulating emotions can be challenging for some people due to various internal and external factors. This includes their mood, their use of DBT skills, and the beliefs they hold about their emotional experiences. If their emotions become too difficult to handle, they can take time for self-reflection by going through some key questions.

The DBT What Makes it Hard to Regulate Emotions worksheet is a two-page activity. It includes questions with yes or no answers and statements for reflection on improving their current situations. For instance, the worksheet asks them to consider whether they’re using the best possible DBT skills or if they’re experiencing intense emotions that are preventing them from using these skills.

Using this worksheet allows kids and teens to identify and address internal and external factors that hinder their ability to control their emotions, and can help them achieve their goals effectively. For an additional visual aid, feel free to pair this resource with our DBT What Makes it Hard to Regulate Emotions handout.
