DBT and Ostracism

Dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) is helpful in dealing with anxiety and increasing stress tolerance. These therapies are also good for quelling the tendency to react impulsively to the ostracism experience, especially since an ostracized person may desperately desire attention from the person or group who is ostracizing them, and the impulse to do something inappropriate for attention may be really strong. These therapies may prevent the ostracized person from behaving in a way that they might later regret. Instead, the therapies will help them make positive changes for themselves that will assist in their overall recovery.
