You may have tried many negative, self-defeating coping strategies to deal with these issues. They may
make you feel better short term but they don't last long, do nothing to solve the real issues and probably make the situation
worse. You may feel flawed, misunderstood or even hopeless. It's not your fault! You are doing the best you can with the skills
and strategies you have.
Through DBT and DBT Inspired Skills Classes, we will work to build on your strengths and
arm you with new skills and strategies and ways to apply them in your daily life to help you cope with these challenging situations
and emotions. It can help you manage instability; negative, judgemental or limited thinking; and relationship issues while
validating your feelings.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is a type of psychotherapy developed in the late 1980's by psychologist Marsha M. Linehan,
Ph.D., ABPP. It is designed to enhance lives by reducing destructive behaviors and interpersonal patterns, while improving
coping and communication skills.
Dialectics - The idea that opposites can
coexist or contradicting ideas can exist simultaneously. Recognizing that both points of view in a given situation are valid
while at the same time working on balance and acceptance.
Behavior Therapy - The goal of Behavior Therapy is to help people
develop and try new ways of thinking, feeling, speaking, coping and doing things. It looks at the present situation and moment
in time instead of focusing on the past. Behavior Therapy focuses on the persons beliefs and views not on their personality.
The goal is to teach participants new skills and new behaviors to minimize or eliminate the issues.
Module 1 - Mindfulness: Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction works to improve our ability to stay in the
moment and focus effectively to reduce suffering and stress.
Module 2 - Distress Tolerance: This will teach you how to deal with difficult feelings without making things worse.
Module 3 - Emotion Regulation: The
skills you will learn in this module will help you feel some control over strong emotions through understanding what causes
them, how to decrease painful emotions while increasing pleasant
Module 4 - Interpersonal Effectiveness: You will gain skills
in effective communication within a wide range of relationships from family, to romantic to work.
Group therapy/classes can help you see you are not alone in your struggles.
Through the DBT Skills and Mindfulness training you will learn to stay in-the-moment, decrease negative thinking and impulsivity,
understand your emotions, communicate more effectively and maintain positive relationships. If you are having trouble giving up self-defeating behaviors, then you can benefit from these skills.
Individuals, families, and couples may opt for tailored coaching sessions
to supplement their Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction or Dialectical Behavioral Therapy Skills Training.
