Learn How to Ride the Wave with DBT Therapy

WAVERelationships can sometimes bring distress and for some, emotions feel like a Tsunami! An effective form of therapy can help reduces the size of emotional waves and find balance DURING the storm  (not just AFTER the storm like most traditional therapies). Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is an evidence-based therapy that teaches both self-acceptance AND self-improvement. For example, Jan was in therapy to learn how to cope with her rebellious teen daughter. One statement she made over and over was, “I am a terrible mom!” She had a long list of reasons to support this belief and spent a great deal of time obsessing over why she was not a good mom. Jan reacted by yelling, criticizing, and using extreme forms of punishment which caused her daughter to become withdrawn and increased alienation. Using DBT, she was able to identify and accept her feelings of inadequacy as a mom, but then learned skills to regulate intense emotions, leading to a more effective way of communicating with her teen and ultimately, a loving relationship.  DBT helped Jan move from her view of  “what I am doing wrong” to “what I can do right”.  Jan realized judging and criticizing  herself actually kept her in pain and worsened her relationships.

Sick with “I’m Not Worthy Syndrome?” Here’s the cure for this self-esteem-sapping-itis:

The “I’m Not Worthy Syndrome” was popularized by the Saturday Night Live recurring skit “Wayne’s World” performed by comedians Mike Myers and Dana Carvey in the late 80’s. As a teenager at the time, I remember laughing with friends as we mimicked the phrase “I’m not worthy!” repeatedly to one another in social situations relevant to the coined phrase. However, the I’m Not Worthy Syndrome is no laughing matter! The sad reality is many people struggle with feelings of unworthiness that sap their self-esteem and rob them from the richness and joy to be experienced in daily living.

Q: What is the I’m Not Worthy Syndrome?

A: “I’m Not Worthy Syndrome” is a colloquial term rather than an identified mental health disorder referring to the tendency to believe ourselves unworthy of the endless positive experiences life has to offer. We may believe we are unworthy of love, healthy relationships, a fulfilling career, financial success, our goals and dreams, physical health, peace of mind—the list is endless and can induce withholding ourselves from such fundamental needs as feeling safe, feeling joy, and feeling purpose in living.
