Self-Soothe DBT With Six Senses (PDF)

Translation missing: en.products.product.view_full_details

DBT distress tolerance skill self-soothe includes movement as the sixth sense of the self-soothing skill, which helps develop resilience and is essential in recovering from emotional distress. Movement in general uses the integration of physical, social, emotional, and cognitive functioning, which promotes an experience of freedom and flexibility so that clients can trust their bodies more.

The Self-Soothe DBT with Six Senses PDF handout offers an additional take by including movement as a self-soothe skill, and provides examples of movement, such as stretching, yoga, and walking. It also includes the other five senses of vision, hearing, taste, touch, and smell.

Using this handout allows kids and teens to release their physical and emotional energy, and practice mindfulness through simple sensory-based activities. This handout offers a good reminder to practice distress tolerance no matter the place and time, and can be paired with our Self-Soothe DBT Worksheets.
