DBT skills training for families helps individual members increase their attention to relationships within the family so they can work in a more collaborative manner as a whole unit.
By focusing on increasing more effective strategies in distress tolerance and interpersonal effectiveness, the family becomes more unified, as well as better able to support the development of autonomy of each member.
Learning to self-validate and validate the experience of others (even when these seem to be opposites) develops a stronger sense of balance & acceptance which paves the way for change.
