I am happy to be bringing a DBT Skills Group to North Scottsdale. This group will be starting Tuesday, September 17, 2019, from 6:00pm-8:00pm. This is an ongoing DBT group and new participants are welcome to join at the beginning of the modules.
DBT stands for Dialectical Behavior Therapy. Dialectical means that two seemingly opposing ideas can both be true at the same time. An example of this is, things can be both black and white at the same time or we can be both happy and sad simultaneously. DBT is a skills based therapy and often meets the needs for patients learning how to be more effective with their emotions, during stressful events, and with other people.
In the 12 weeks of this group we will have two weeks of mindfulness skills; learning what it means to be in the present moment and how to be okay while doing so. There will be four weeks of emotion regulation skills; learning how to manage and cope with our emotions in both the short term and long term. There will be three weeks of distress tolerance; learning how to manage our overwhelming emotions and learning how to accept the things we cannot change. Finally, there will be three weeks of interpersonal effectiveness; learning how to ask for what we want, learning how to say no, and overall how to be more effective within our relationships.
Please contact me to join the group or if you have any questions.
