DBT Group for Parents and Teens
This is a skill-building group for families that want less conflict in their relationships. In this group, you will learn to feel successful handling conflict, control the feelings that want to control you, live through your lows without going lower, and discover the middle path in your family. Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a psycho-educational approach which builds competence in emotion regulation, distress tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness, mindfulness, and walking the middle path. These skills are uniquely suited for the kinds of difficulties facing parents and teenagers. DBT can be used in conjunction with individual therapy. Call for dates and times
