Adolescent DBT Skills Training
This DBT Skills Training Group is for adolescents ages 13-17. It follows the same DBT program as the adult skills training, and can assist with any of several compulsive and/or self-harming behavior problems and/or serious emotional regulation problems. Participants will learn and practice mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness skills.
An initial evaluation will be completed by a DBT trained clinician. A decision will then be made regarding a client’s appropriateness for group participation.
Clients must see an individual DBT therapist, at Resource Group or elsewhere, while enrolled in DBT Skills Training.
This DBT group meets for two hours each week, and lasts for 18 weeks.
