Adult DBT Skills Group
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) Group is for anyone struggling to regulate their emotions and decrease ineffective behaviors. In DBT four sets of skills are taught: mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness. Combined, these skills give you the tools to be more effective in your life and to build a life worth living.
DBT Program at Green Couch Counseling:
We ask all participants to attend our orientation and mindfulness group before joining a 6 week skills group. Orientation and mindfulness meets twice for 1.5 hours. In this group you will learn about DBT as a modality of therapy, skills you will use throughout the program and DBT mindfulness skills. After attending the two session orientation, you will select one of our three skills training groups to join.
Skills Training Groups
Each module below runs 6 weeks and cycles through the three skill topics
1) Emotion Regulation: You will learn skills that change your relationship with your emotions. Emotion regulations skills decrease emotional suffering and teach what emotions do for you.
2) Distress Tolerance: These are not for everyday use, but are to use when in crisis, when having an urge to self harm, or to prevent a situation from becoming worse or creating new problems.
3) Interpersonal effectiveness: These skills allow you to function more effectively in relationships and improve your communication.
DBT group costs $50/ session. We ask that you commit to all 6 groups when joining a skills group. We accept BCBS, Cigna and United Healthcare plans.
