Our Adult, Young Adult, and Adolescent classes meet for cycles of 24 weeks. It is more common than not for clients to decide to complete two or more cycles to solidify their learning. In 24 weeks, clients will learn and practice essential DBT skills from all of the modules. All DBT Classes contain modules of Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Emotion Regulation, and Interpersonal Effectiveness. For adolescents and their parents, there is an extra module: Walking the Middle Path for Families.
Mindfulness Skills: Increasing awareness and control over attention in order to balance reason and emotion and stay present.
Interpersonal Effectiveness Skills: Getting your needs met and setting boundaries, while improving relationships and self-respect.
Emotional Regulation Skills: Increasing control over emotions, changing emotional states, increasing pleasant, positive emotions.
Distress Tolerance Skills: Managing very painful situations and emotions in healthy ways.
Walking the Middle Path Skills: Improved communication and peace between family members through practicing dialectical thinking, reinforcement strategies, and validation.
