Emotions out of control? This is a quick and effective DBT distress tolerance skill to unwind & access your Wise Mind. STOP stands for: Stop, Take a Breathe & Step Back, Observe, & Proceed Mindfully. This skill is great for when you are feeling overwhelmed, distressed, and in need of grounding that you can use on the go. Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a type of cognitive-behavioral therapy that is backed by decades of research that helps teach people how to live in the present moment, develop healthy ways to cope with stress, improve their relationships with others, and regulate their emotions.
