Group Description

The DBT skills group is an didactic-based skills group that aims to help clients learn, understand, and apply skills out of each DBT module (Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Emotion Regulation, and Interpersonal Effectiveness).  Groups begin with a mindfulness practice and homework review from the previous week.  Each group session will teach a specific skill and provide an opportunity to discuss successful planning and implementation of the skill and factors that could make the skill challenging to practice and master.  Members of the DBT skills group need to be in individual DBT treatment with an intensively trained DBT individual therapist who provides skills coaching.  Clients also must complete an intake and identify goals for the group as well as targeted behaviors and emotions that they will address during their participation in the group.  Members must make a 6 month commitment.
