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.
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.
What You’ll Learn from Emily Dailey
- How emotional sensitivity is connected to eating disorders as well as borderline personality disorder
- What is DBT and how it helps people recover from eating disorders
- Specific skills that can help you manage and tolerate distress in crisis situations
- The difference between unjustified and justified emotions
- How to use mindfulness to participate more in your life and cultivate gratitude
Trust the wait, embrace the uncertainty, enjoy the beauty of becoming, when nothing is certain, anything is possible. -anonymous
Favorite Recovery Resource
- “I’m surrounded by so many smart people and researchers at UCSD like Dr. Walter Kaye; I love how both our clinical and research components at UCSD are always looking for ways to find better treatment.”
