The DBT Skills group is a 16-week virtual group focused on helping individuals gain the skills to better regulate and manage their mood and relationships. Across the 16 weeks, individuals will learn skills in four different areas: Mindfulness, Interpersonal Effectiveness, Emotion Regular, and Distress Tolerance.
Mindfulness skills represent a set of skills to help individuals ground in the present moment and to reduce suffering. Interpersonal effectiveness skills represent skills to help individuals build better relationships, end destructive ones, and become more effective at asking for what they want. Emotion regulation skills help individuals to understand and name their emotions and decrease frequency of unwanted emotions. Lastly, distress tolerance skills aim to help individuals survive crisis situations better and accept reality as it is.
