Free exercise to help clients define their goals & ambitions

Katelyn Baxter-Musser, LCSW, CDBT

Once the go-to treatment for borderline personality disorder, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) has become recognized as one of the most desirable therapies by both clinicians and patients alike…

…because it’s easy to apply and adapt the principles of DBT with clients from all walks of life.

The primary goals of DBT are to help clients identify a life worth living and guide them towards changes that’ll help them reach their goals. But for individuals who are anxious, depressed, or even suicidal, thinking about their ideal life can be overwhelming.

Use these guided worksheets in the early stages of treatment to help clients reflect on their goals and priorities in a more manageable way. Once you’ve identified potential areas of change, you can work collaboratively to identify steps towards achieving your clients’ goals, strengthening your therapeutic alliance and moving your clients towards a life worth living!
