This is an ongoing DBT Skills Training class for adults that cycles through all four modules. DBT is a skills-based class in which participants will learn, practice, and apply new skills. DBT Skills Classes are an effective supplement to individual therapy for those that desire to be in the present moment and participate fully in life, cope effectively with symptoms of anxiety or depression, get unstuck from unhelpful emotional or behavioral patterns, let go of judgments of self and others, utilize skillful ways of getting through emotional crises, decrease behaviors that are creating difficulties in life, more effectively handle emotional pain, and use assertive communication.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an evidenced based treatment approach proven effective in helping people to better regulate their thoughts, feelings and behaviors by teaching them skills they can utilize in the moment. Through skills use, people are able to reduce maladaptive behaviors such as suicide attempts, self-injurious behaviors, and distorted thinking. Crisis management skills are also developed through DBT. Skills training takes place via a group setting concurrently with process-based, individual therapy. The four DBT modules are Core Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Emotion Regulation, and Interpersonal Effectiveness.

DBT is helpful for clients who suffer from chronic emotional dysregulation and who may have a variety of diagnoses. Clients in our groups are required to also be engaged in individual therapy and we work together with primary therapists to coordinate treatment. We offer two ongoing groups for adults that cycle through three 12-week modules including: Emotion Regulation, Interpersonal Effectiveness and Distress Tolerance with Mindfulness taught during the first three weeks of each module. We have a co-ed group and a group for women only.

The DBT Skills Training Groups are divided into three 14-week modules. Groups are kept to a maximum of 8 participants with two co-leaders to allow for greater level of skill acquisition and adjustment of the skill use for each individual. Our groups tend to be intellectually high functioning yet continue to experience significant emotional distress. Group leaders have extensive training in DBT and also advanced conceptual training in working with personality, mood and anxiety disorders. We place the utmost importance in practicing ethically and with healthy boundaries. Group members are required to be in individual therapy. We work closely with individual therapists in order to provide a true treatment team approach.
