Teen and Tween Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Skills Groups-In Person
Teens and tweens can learn concrete skills in a group setting to take back control of painful emotions to make immediate positive change that increases safety, improves relationships and lifts the overwhelming darkness.
Struggling teens who experience big, overwhelming emotions may also experience a slower return to calm, frequently cry, feel hopeless, post risky things on social media, lose their friends, miss school, or explode.
Family members may be in a constant state of worry over when the next explosion will come, and if their loved one will harm themselves, destroy a relationship or do something risky that will negatively impact their lives for years to come.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) has been proven effective in:
- Helping teens manage painful emotions in the short and long term
- Being more mindful of themselves and the world around them to better tune into their feelings and what to do with them
- Developing a toolbox of concrete skills to prevent or replace high risk behavior that is dangerous, destroys relationships, and decreases self worth
- Building a life worth living so they can make it through the school day, have meaningful relationships and be safe to have fun and enjoy life again
