People with Borderline Personality Disorder are notably deficient in social skills. This makes personal interactions very difficult to navigate on a day to day basis.

That’s why Marsha Linehan,PhD, made social skill training an integral part of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), her ground-breaking treatment for BPD and a host of other behavioral disorders.

Chief among the many skills in DBT are the so-called PLEASE skills, an acronym for a collection of self-care practices that are relatively easy to implement into your lifestyle.
