What is Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)?
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) was developed by Marsha Linehan. It is an effective, empirically supported, cognitive-therapy based intervention system for teaching skills that will help in coping with sudden, intense surges of emotion.
Skills to be covered:
· Distress Tolerance
· Emotional Regulation
· Interpersonal Effectiveness
How to register:
Virtual group therapy offers participants the opportunity to interact with others with similar issues in a safe, supportive environment, led by a trained and licensed therapist.
Especially as people are sheltering-at-home, virtual groups, enabled by videoconferencing, can counter feelings of isolation while connecting and sharing experiences together.
Fees are $25 per person, per session. A link and instructions to join will be sent after intake.
This group requires a minimum of 3 people and can accommodate up to 8 people.
