The Appetite Episode #18: Emotion and Learning: The Self-Inquiry Process in Radically Open DBT

An Opal: Food+Body Wisdom Podcast

Would you engage yourself differently if you assumed that all the emotions you experienced had something to teach you? Today, Opal: Food+Body Wisdom’s Lexi Giblin, PhD, CEDS, and Carter Umhau, MA, LMHCA explore the process of “self-inquiry”–a key tool in Radically Open DBT. Self-inquiry is all about seeking growth rather than trying to fix one’s shortcomings. In this episode, Lexi will lean into the strength of her own vulnerability in order to model the process of self-inquiry in action!
