Suffolk DBT, J. L., LCSW's Groups

Adolescent DBT Groups

The DBT skills group is an didactic skills group that aims to help clients learn, understand, and apply skills out of each DBT module (Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Emotion Regulation, and Interpersonal Effectiveness). Groups begin with a mindfulness practice and homework review from the previous week. Each group session will teach a specific skill and provide an opportunity to discuss successful planning and implementation of the skill and factors that could make the skill challenging to master. There is a separate parent group that takes place weekly where parents/family members learn the same skills that the child is learning.

DBT- C for children ages 7-12

This DBT Program treats children with a variety of diagnoses such as depression, anxiety, ADD, ADHD, OCD, emotion regulation disorders, self-harm/impulse disorders, and eating disorders. Our DBT Program for children teaches the full set of DBT Skills to kids and their parents (so that parents can reinforce the skills at home during the week), with homework to review throughout the week. Parent and child are seen together twice a week once for an individual session and once to learn skills together.
