DBT Skills for Young Adults
Our group therapy program is unique in that we encourage our clients to continue working with their outside therapists when enrolled in our groups. We will collaborate weekly with your therapist to create a cohesive Treatment Team that focuses on comprehensive, high-quality care.
In group therapy, clients gain support and understanding from others with similar experiences. It also offers the opportunity to learn to express and tolerate difficult emotions in a safe and nurturing environment. Group therapy is particularly helpful for teens who feel isolated or alone.
Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a highly effective type of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), originally created to treat borderline personality disorder. Today, it’s used to treat a variety of conditions, such as bipolar disorder, eating disorders and depression. DBT teaches clients four sets of behavioral skills: mindfulness; distress tolerance; interpersonal effectiveness; and emotion regulation.
But, whether you have a mental illness or not, you can absolutely benefit from learning these skills and incorporating them into your life.* - psychcentral
