DBT family skills training is designed to help adolescents who are struggling with regulating emotions and behaviors. The family group setting is both educational and interactive, with a strong focus on learning and developing skills over time.
The core components of RO-DBT are (1) Individual Therapy (2) Skills Class and (3) Phone Coaching. Treatment starts by observing three core components of emotional well-being: openness to feedback, even when this is challenging; flexibility in our responses to changing environmental demands; and communication of our emotions, with awareness that expressing emotion is crucial when forming close interpersonal bonds.
