DBT Interpersonal Effectiveness Skills

Teach your clients to use interpersonal effectiveness skills as a part of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). This handout summarizes three skills related to interpersonal effectiveness including objective, relationship, and self-respect effectiveness. Interpersonal effectiveness skills are intended to help your client become more aware of how their behavior affects relationships, and then make positive changes. We suggest teaching and practicing these skills in session, and then providing this DBT worksheet to clients as a take-home reminded of what they've learned.
