Overwhelming Feelings?
Impulse to self-harm?
Attention and Focus?

Self and Others?
Reduce Vulnerability to Emotion Mind?


If you responded "YES" to three or more of these questions, you will receive great value from this program.

The DBT Skills Training group is for adolescents (14-17) who would like to learn how to cope more effectively with intense emotions, problematic thoughts or behaviors (i.e. negative thinking, self-harm, substance use, polarized or suicidal thinking), and relationship struggles.

Mindfulness, Interpersonal Effectiveness, Emotion Regulation, and Distress Tolerance skills are taught in order to reduce self-destructive behaviors and learn more adaptive ways to manage painful emotions to have a life worth living.

This group is a structured psychoeducation program with handouts, worksheets and DBT practice assignments to support you in learning these valuable skills.
