For those participants with pre and post data, significant improvements were observed in increased mindfulness, improved distress tolerance, and increases in emotion regulation. Effect size calculations showed large, medium and large effect sizes, respectively.
Outcome measures for the programme are expected to remain the same for the coming year. There is research ongoing on this programme which is looking at understanding problems of emotional over and under- control and response to the DBT informed interventions (i.e. LTD and RO). All the data for this project has been collected and it is currently being written up.
The programme was shortlisted for three awards at the Irish Health Care Centre Awards 2015.
