Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Group

Adults who want to improve their capacity to operate effectively in their environment can benefit from this skills-based, minimally process-oriented group.

The group is structured in an educational format for skill acquisition/ application from a multicultural and collaborative lens. We’ll teach skills, discuss their application, and practice skills between sessions.

This is a good group for students in need of emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness skills. We’ll start by discussing mindfulness skills for two weeks at the beginning of each module. Those skills are incorporated into others throughout the semester.

Tuesdays 3:30–5 p.m.; Wednesdays, 3:30–5 p.m.; 9:30-11 a.m.
Sept. 7–Dec. 3

Status: Tuesday-Virtual, Wednesday/Friday- In person

Tuesday Facilitators: Lauren Enty & Connor Stevenson
