DBT GROUPS

ADULT DBT GROUP

Groups consist of 4-8 individuals in a 90-minute session learning the following skills modules:

  1. Mindfulness: This set of skills teaches clients to live ‘here and now’ and not stay in the past or worry about the future.
  2. Emotion Regulation: This set of skills teaches clients how to detect and reflect a person’s emotions without judgment and determine what role those emotions play in our bodies and minds.
  3. Interpersonal Effectiveness: This set of skills teaches clients to ask for what they need from themselves and others while keeping calm if things don’t go as desired.
  4. Distress Tolerance: This set of skills teaches clients how to tolerate strong emotions that usually send the person into a whirlwind of emotions and thoughts often leading to destructive behaviors.

Length of Treatment

The length to complete all modules is 24 weeks. Clients typically need 2 cycles of skills totaling 48 weeks. Evidenced-based research shows that the typical length of effective treatment is 1 year. This may be shorter or longer depending on myriad factors, which will be discussed upon intake and ongoing through the treatment to determine the best course of treatment for each individual.
