For Teens and Young Adults
If you struggle to control your emotions and urges and feel you are more intense than most of the people you know, DBT skills training may be helpful for you. Groups are comprised of 4-8 members, divided by age.
Middle and high school groups will use music, art and group exercises to increase understanding. Young adult group will work from the Depressed and Anxious workbook by Thomas Marra, PhD.
All groups are both educational and supportive, providing opportunies for each member to learn and practice the skills of interpersonal effectiveness, mindfulness, distress tolerance and emotion regulation.
