•Weekly DBT Skills Training Group
The DBT Skills training group teaches skills to be effective and in control of emotions, to stabilize emotions and reduce emotional vulnerability, to tolerate distressing situations and survive crises and to manage interpersonal relationships to feel competent and in control. Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a powerful form of therapy for individuals who have trouble regulating emotions & behaviors. These groups help replace problematic thought / behavior patterns with more adaptive ways of coping to create a "life worth living." We focus on 4 skills modules: 1) Mindfulness, 2) Distress Tolerance, 3) Emotion Regulation, & 4) Interpersonal Effectiveness.
Phone coaching helps clients refrain from impulsive behaviors in between sessions.
