DBT Skills Group for Adolescents

This group, led by experts in dialectical behavior therapy, teaches teens and their parent(s) the following DBT skill modules: mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, interpersonal effectiveness, and walking the middle path. This engaging and practical group includes handouts, take-home exercises, and experiential activities, and there is no expectation that group members share information that is uncomfortable. Research has shown that caregivers' involvement makes treatment more effective because caregivers learn to serve as coaches for their children and benefit from learning the skills themselves.
