Adolescent DBT Skills Group (age 10-14)


Utilizing Jill Rathus and Alec Miller’s adaptation of DBT skills for adolescents, this group will explore the four pillars of DBT- Mindfulness, Interpersonal Effectiveness, Emotion Regulation, and Distress Tolerance. Participants will engage with one another and facilitators to work on controlling and replacing negative emotions and behaviors, building and maintaining healthy relationships, and remain present in their daily life."

Having worked in Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) and traditional addiction treatment, our Founder and Director, Katherine Casey, saw firsthand the benefits of holistic care beyond traditional talk therapy including somatic and arts therapies, providing family support, collaborating with medical providers, and referrals to community resources. Perhaps most importantly, she recognized the value of using personal insight and experiences to help guide clients on their paths to wellness and self-discovery. Today, these lessons are the principles that guide our practice.

At The Root Therapy NYC clients have the opportunity to develop insight and gain new skills while feeling empowered in the therapeutic process. Clients play a key role in developing goals and evaluating progress in the therapeutic process – they decide what they want to get out of therapy and when they have achieved their goals.

The Root Therapy NYC is staffed with therapists with a range of clinical training and expertise to help guide clients through a change process using approaches that research has proven effective. Each therapist is an individual who reflects the group’s guiding principles through ongoing clinical supervision, continuing education, community engagement, and self-care.
