September 4, 2019 to January 15, 2020
05:30 PM until 07:00 PM
This event occurs weekly, on Wednesday.
*SEE DATES SECTION BELOW- THIS EVENT HAS 4 MODULES THAT OCCUR ONCE A WEEK, 4 WEEKS PER MODULE*
Is your teen struggling with managing his emotions? Is she often overwhelmed or easily upset? Has your teen expressed a sense of emptiness or confusion? Is there frequent family conflict? Is she struggling in her peer relationships? Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an evidenced-based approach that helps teens learn how to cope with emotions in a healthy and productive manner. DBT is especially helpful for teens diagnosed with anxiety or depression, or for kids struggling with self-harming behaviors such as cutting. Our ongoing DBT group is comprised of four different modules, each focusing on a specific skill. New members can join at the start of each module as space permits. Because this DBT group is primarily educational in nature, each member is required to concurrently participate in individual therapy at the provider of his choosing. Through a series of activities, role-plays, videos, worksheets, experiential exercises, and homework activities, your teen will learn the following skills:
- Mindfulness (Module 1) - focusing the mind and thoughts, directing
- attention, understanding how you feel, and being present in the moment
- Emotion Regulation (Module 2) – how to reduce emotional intensity
- Distress Tolerance (Module 3) – how to reduce impulsivity, especially
- in moments of high emotional distress
- Interpersonal Effectiveness (Module 4) – how to form and maintain
- steady and healthy relationships, communicating personal needs, and
- getting needs met in a pro-social manner.
