DBT Adolescent Group
*This is an ongoing program that runs year-round on Mondays 4:00-5:30pm.
What is DBT?
Dialectical Behavior Therapy is designed to help people learn better ways of regulating and managing their emotions. This is accomplished by helping clients learn to balance changes with acceptance. It has been found to be especially effecive in working with teens as this is a stage of life when managing emotions can be especially difficult. This group is designed to help teens who struggle weith issues of depression, self-esteem, anxiety, self-harm, anger and other forms of emotional distress. It is a mixed group of both boys and girls, and curriculum will focus on four principle learning areas:
- Interpersonal Effectiveness
- Regulating Emotions
- Dealing with Emotional Distress
The group cost is $200 monthly tuition ($250 on five week-months). We accept Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance. Participants must register and first meet with a therapist for an initial intake session, before coming to group.
