Saturdays 11-12:30pm (call for schedule)


The DBT group is primarily for those who have difficulties with mood disturbances, impulse control, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, chronic suicidal ideation and attempts, self-harm, and addiction.

The group teaches skills in the following 5 modules:

  • Mindfulness: Mindfulness is intentionally being in the present moment with

     full awareness and acceptance. You will learn how to practice mindfulness    

     exercises to move your mind to a wise place to make more effective decisions

     and to stop ruminating thinking. 

  • Distress Tolerance: Distress tolerance skills are tools to use when you are in

     a crisis situation and do not want to make the situation worse.  You will learn skills  

     to distract,  self-soothe and improve the moment in order to reduce and eventually

     to eliminate destructive behaviors.

  • Emotion Regulation: Emotion regulation skills help to reduce emotional vulnerability

      and emotional suffering. You will learn effective ways to both change your emotions

      and to accept them in the moment.   

  • Interpersonal Effectiveness: Interpersonal effectiveness skills teach you to create,

     foster and end relationships, set limits and boundaries and say no! You will learn

     to get your needs met and add healthy relationships to your life.  

  • Walking the Middle Path: Be willing to negotiate and find the “gray” area in situations.     Walking the Middle Path skills will help you to reduce all or nothing thinking.
