Individual DBT Skills Training: the key components of skills training are customized to the client’s needs in a one-on-one environment. Clients benefit from learning and practicing the skills while also getting individual attention.

Family DBT Skills Training: skills are taught to family members simultaneously. Family members have the benefit of learning the skills in a structured learning environment and then practicing the skills at home. Family DBT offers the unique opportunity for the family to learn and grow together.
