DBT Skills Groups
Multi-family, Adult, Teen
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) includes skills-based training in a group setting. In a DBT skills group, clients will learn and practice DBT tools to improve their ability to solve problems, cope with crises, manage interpersonal conflicts, and set and achieve goals in various areas of their lives
Where to begin
DBT skills are helpful for everyone. Once you learn the skills you have them for your whole life.
Although it was originally developed to help people who are struggling with suicide, DBT has been shown to be an effective treatment for a number of issues including: anxiety, depression, addiction, anger, impulsivity, and relationship problems, interpersonal isolation, and ineffectiveness at work.
DBT skills groups
consist of four modules:
Advanced DBT Skills Groups
For individuals that have already completed a DBT Skills Group and want to take their skills to the next level, our Advanced DBT Skills Groups enable individuals to continue reinforcing these previously learned skills. Clients will also learn a variety of new DBT skills to further their knowledge.
The Advanced DBT Skills Groups also differs from traditional skills groups in that they function as a hybrid skills group and process group. Some time will be spent drawing on skills from DBT, cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), mindfulness, the works of Tara Brach, Jon Kabat-Zinn, Marsha Linehan, Jack Kornfield,Thich Nhat Hanh, Adyashanti, Donald Altman, Michael Singer, and Brene Brown, among others. Additionally, time will be spent on traditional (Yalom) process group techniques to allow clients to experience support and interactions in a safe, supportive environment.
