Do we all need DBT skills to better regulate our emotions

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) talks about the “emotional mind”, “reasonable mind”, and the “wise mind” with the aim to move towards the “wise mind” more often.

The “wise mind” is the healthy integration of the emotional and the more logical mind.

With that in mind, I suspect that all humans would benefit from DBT and not just for those with poor emotional regulation.

I wonder if we can incorporate that into our consults at some level and for ourselves as part of self care.
