DBT Skills Class for Teens
(12 weeks starting 5/6/2022)

Dialectical Behavior Therapy or DBT skills training is a weekly group, run like a class, which teaches skills across four main topics:

  1. Mindfulness is designed to teach a person how to focus their mind and attention.
  2. Distress Tolerance is centered on accepting the current situation and finding ways to survive and tolerate the moment without engaging in problematic behavior.
  3. Emotion Regulation skills include learning to identify and label current emotions, identifying obstacles to changing emotions, reducing emotional reactivity, increasing positive emotions, and changing emotions.
  4. Interpersonal Effectiveness skills teach effective strategies for asking for what one needs, saying no, and coping with interpersonal conflict.

Our DBT skills group aims to teach a broad set of basic skills that are relevant to a variety of mental health needs and challenges. DBT skills are evidence-based and research has shown effective in reducing symptoms of Oppositional Defiant Disorder and those with depression, anxiety, and other mood and behavior disorders.
