What is Dialectical Behavior Therapy?
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an evidence-based treatment model proven to be effective in strengthening one’s ability to manage distress without losing control and responding destructively. It was originally developed at the University of Washington in Seattle by research psychologist Marsha Linehan, Ph.D. Key components of the work focus on emotion regulation, interpersonal effectiveness, distress tolerance skills, and mindfulness skills derived from Buddhist meditative practices. All workbooks and handouts will be supplied. I have taught DBT for over 12 years and have extensive experience, I am happy to discuss this work with you. Please contact me for more information.
DBT Group Sessions
The group meets once weekly for approximately 6 months.
DBT Skills Training Groups are designed to be a closed small group limited to 4-6 individuals at a time. Clients are carefully screened in order to create a comfortable fit and feeling of safety within the group. DBT is taught as a course or class. We will cover the four modules in depth to facilitate understanding and growth.
All course material and workbooks are provided. I offer DBT Skills Training Groups for adults and teens.See Pricing
