DBT Skills Group

Problematic behaviors evolve as a way to cope with difficult situations or as a way to solve a problem. While these behaviors might provide temporary relief or a short-term solution, they often are not effective in the long-term. DBT assumes that clients are doing the best they can, AND they need to learn new behaviors in all relevant contexts. DBT helps enhance a client’s capabilities by teaching behavioral skills in areas like mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness. These skills help people manage specific challenges and develop effective ways to navigate situations that arise in everyday life.
