Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Group for Adults Age 18+: Tuesdays 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Individuals often struggle in silence with the following challenges:

·      Coping with transitions (Divorce, death, transistion, loss of relationships)

·      Managing emotions (anger, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, negative self-judgments)

·      Effectively communicating wants and needs

·      Building and maintaining relationships

·      Working through past events or trauma in the here-and-now

DBT Group helps individuals to address these challenges by gaining skills in the following 4 domains:

·    Distress Tolerance skills help individuals to cope with painful events by introducing skills that will soften the effects of upsetting circumstances. DBT helps individuals to accept, find meaning for, and tolerate distress. It emphasizes learning to tolerate pain skillfully.

 

·    Mindfulness skills will help individuals to more fully appreciate the present moment while focusing less on painful experiences from the past or frightening possibilities in the future. Mindfulness gives individuals the tools to overcome habitual, negative judgments about self and others.

 

·    Interpersonal Effectiveness skills give individuals tools to ask for what they need, set healthy boundaries, be assertive, and cope with interpersonal conflict. It focuses on negotiating solutions to problems— while protecting their relationships and treating others with respect.

 

·    Emotion Regulation skills help individuals to recognize more clearly what they feel with emphasis on observing each emotion without judgment. This results in a more balanced life.
