DBT Groups

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Groups offer benefits that traditional individual therapy can’t.

Groups can offer a safe environment.

DBT Skills Training is designed to help those who experience strong emotions or behave in ways that are ineffective. Groups offer a safe environment in which you are able to feel respected and valued and you learn skills to move forward.

Groups provide support.

Speaking in a confidential setting with people who may have had experiences similar to your own helps you recognize that you are not alone. Groups help us see situations from a variety of perspectives.

Groups create space for change.

The intention of DBT Skills Training is learning skills that increase an individual’s ability to have a life worth living, not to immediately “feel better”. If we want to create change in our world, we have to change the chains of events that cause unwanted behaviors and events.

About Our Groups

The foundational skills and dialectical approach of DBT will help individuals build self-control over impulsive behaviors and move away from all-or-nothing thinking to a more balanced approach with their internal emotional experience and external relationships. This is a six-week course and participants meet weekly for 1 hour.

Designed for those who struggle with:

01

Intense and unpredictable emotions

02

Chaotic and unstable relationships

03

Self-destructive behaviors

Important:

Groups are open to adults 18 years old or older. We will bill your insurance directly or offer a discount if you choose to pay out of pocket. Contact us for information related to group start dates, meeting days and times, or if you have questions about payment.

Fundamentals of DBT Group

The Fundamentals of DBT Group is designed for those who struggle with control.

Self-control is a trait highly valued in many societies. However, individuals with excessive self-control can struggle with issues such as social isolation, poor interpersonal functioning, perfectionism, rigidity, risk aversion, and lack of emotional expression.

Over time, these symptoms sometimes lead to mental health conditions including:
  • intense and unpredictable emotions
  • chaotic and unstable relationships
  • self-destructive behaviors

In this therapy group, participants will learn and explore essential skills aimed at improving openness, flexibility, social connectedness, and overall emotional wellbeing.
