Adult DBT Skills Training Group

I am happy to be bringing a DBT Skills Group to North Scottsdale. This group will be starting Tuesday, February 25, 2020, from 6:00pm-8:00pm. This is a closed group, which means all participants will begin group on February 25 and no new members will be added past this start date. 

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 within relationships with others.

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.

Schedule your intake in order to participate in the group.
