Adolescent DBT Skills Program

This is a 90 minute DBT Adolescent Skills Group that meets weekly and covers the DBT model based on the curriculum of Dr. Alec Miller and Jill Rathus that combines Dr. Marsha Linehan’s skills training manual specifically tailored to address the needs of adolescents. Incorporating an additional module of Walking the Middle Path, adolescents will be introduced to concepts of Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Emotion Regulation, and Interpersonal Effectiveness. The 16-week group curriculum is educative, fun and interactive. An initial assessment is required. Two 90 minute parent/family sessions are included in the program to further support one another and reduce any conflict and distress within the home.
