Dialectical Behavior Therapy’s distress tolerance skills are used to support us when we are feeling distressed or overwhelmed. Sometimes, when we feel our feelings, we can’t respond to them in the way we would like to - either because we are in a space where we can’t (like at a work meeting), or we are feeling our emotion very intensely. Self-soothing is a distress tolerance skill that uses our senses to soothe our distress. By finding soothing things we can see, hear, taste, touch, or smell, our emotions become soothed as well.
