How DBT Can Supercharge Your Recovery with Emily Dailey of UCSD

Emily Dailey

So excited to be back with a new show, warriors! I took a somewhat unexpected 4-month break, which I talk all about in this short video.

Emily Dailey
I’m honored to have had the opportunity to interview Emily Dailey, a DBT expert and Senior Therapist at UCSD Eating Disorders Center for Treatment and Research. This show is full of actionable advice that you can implement in your life right here, right now. From emotional regulation to interpersonal effectiveness, you will become knowledgable around the foundational background of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, DBT for short. Something that UCSD practices in both their teen and adult programs. I was a past alumna, and so grateful to have been in their care during my senior year of college.
