Adult DBT Group
Life is full of challenges, and it's difficult to manage them all. Sometimes we become reactive to our stressors, and it puts a strain on our relationships. We know that something has to change, but we don't know where to begin. Our DBT group can help you make some changes to manage life on life's terms.
Dialectical behavioral therapy is a form of cognitive behavioral therapy that can be helpful for those who are struggling to manage strong emotions. The four modules that we will focus on in this group are mindfulness, emotional regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness. These modules will teach you coping skills to manage strong emotions, ways to improve your communication, and more!
Do you have experience with DBT skills? Have you already learned the steps to utilize mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness? We all have situations come up where we wish we would've handled them differently, but we don't. Why not? This group can help you identify barriers and challenges to implementing these DBT skills into your everyday life!
