Teen DBT Skills Group

We want to help you:

  • Develop the skills you need to reduce emotional suffering by learning skills to enhance control of emotions
  • Grow in your ability to make informed decisions on behalf of yourself
  • Learn concrete coping strategies to deal with the hard things you face so you no longer feel the need to self-harm or numb your pain with other unhelpful things
  • Develop ways to feel less stress, conflict, and overwhelm by learning to focus attention on the present moment, letting go of the past and future worries.
  • Increase self-awareness, problem solving skills, and effective communication skills to enhance your relationships with friends and family.
  • Tolerate distress and know how to navigate emotionally triggering situations and other crises

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is an evidence-based treatment that teaches emotional, behavioral and cognitive skills and is effective in helping teens who experience difficulty managing their emotions, thoughts, and behaviors.
