Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Skills Group: If you know about DBT, then you probably know what this group is all about. DBT Skills group is a weekly meeting that’s actually more like a class than it is like a traditional psychotherapy group. Members of the group learn about and practice skills in managing difficult emotions, tolerating distress, becoming truly skillful at communicating (and getting what you want), and developing discipline of mind.
- DBT-compliant individual therapy. If you’re not sure what this means, please contact me and we’ll talk about it.
- There are four skill modules (like sections) and it takes about 20 weeks to complete the group. Often people choose to go through the group more than once.
- DBT Skills group dovetails with your individual therapy. You’ll learn skills in group that get applied to your life during individual therapy.
