In DBT, a crisis is defined as a short-term, highly stressful situation with intense pressure to resolve the stress. Crises also include strong urges to engage in destructive or unhelpful behaviours such as substance use, self-harm, angry outbursts, eating disordered behaviour. The Crisis Plan helps you to manage the situation effectively.
