Adolescent Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Group
DBT Coping Skills- is a group for teens who want to learn skills to help manage intense emotions, decrease impulsive behaviors and increase positive relationships with others. The group will focus on learning ways to change unwanted behaviors, emotions, thoughts and events that may cause distress.
The DBT group might be right for your teen if they:
- Feel overwhelmed by intense emotions
- Struggle in relationships with others
- Use unhealthy behaviors to manage emotions
- Struggle with communicating needs to others
- Are the center of family conflict and tension
This is a closed group format, meaning that material in each session is important to the following group sessions. Contact the group facilitator prior to joining, if there are scheduling concerns that may prevent full participation in the 14-week course. Space is limited, please call today to reserve your spot. Call to confirm your space and payment eligibility. If you are not a current client of Red Oak Counseling, an initial assessment is required to determine group readiness. Please note there is an additional fee for this initial assessment.
Parents may consider joining the Family Support: Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) group which runs concurrently with the adolescent group. This group is intended to inform parents, caregivers, and loved ones how to support their family members utilizing DBT skills.
