DBT Skills Training
We offer comprehensive DBT Skills training in the following formats:
Group DBT Skills Training: all of the skill sets of the four modules are taught in a group setting where clients learn and practice in an educational, validating and supportive environment. Clients who attend our groups are encouraged to continue in therapy with their current individual therapist. We collaborate with outside therapists and psychiatrists consistently in order to provide a comprehensive and seamless team approach.
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.
This is perfect for someone who wants to learn and practice the skills and wants to do so one-on-one with a therapist. Clients get the benefit of learning the skills and have the added value of applying the skills to many life experiences as they occur.
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.
Family DBT Skills is perfect for families with children younger than 14 who are interested in learning coping strategies together. Family members work together and with the therapist to target unwanted behaviors and to create new coping strategies and patterns.
