If you have a history of responding to problems with emotional outbursts, mood swings or interpersonal conflict, you may be interested in joining our weekly DBT classes.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) has been found to be one of the most effective approaches to restoring emotional control and giving people mental and physical ways to deal with feeling overwhelmed.
DBT classes teach participants how to:
- * Become more aware of their thoughts and their automatic reactions to stress.
- * Use cognitive-behavioral tools to increase their choices in reacting to
- * Improve reality-testing with concepts of distress tolerance, acceptance, and mindful
This is a psycho-educational class, not group therapy. Discussions focus on the material being presented and the use of these new concepts outside of the class. Each student receives a DBT notebook and handouts pertaining to each class’s topic are added to it weekly. Homework assignments help students use their new DBT skills in real-life situations.
The year-long DBT training program is divided into four “modules” and new participants may join the group when a new module begins. The class meets weekly, on Wednesdays from 10–11:30 am and is covered by most insurance policies. You may have a co-pay.
