Tween DBT Group

Nov 4, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Is your tween struggling with managing his emotions? Is he or she often overwhelmed or easily upset? Has your tween expressed a sense of emptiness or confusion? Is there frequent family conflict? Is he or she struggling in her peer relationships? Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an evidenced-based approach that helps tweens learn how to cope with emotions in a healthy and productive manner. DBT is especially helpful for tweens diagnosed with anxiety or depression, or for kids struggling with self-harming behaviors such as cutting. Our ongoing DBT group is comprised of four different modules, each focusing on a specific skill. New members can join at the start of each module as space permits. Each member is required to concurrently participate in individual therapy at the provider of their choosing.

Through a series of activities, role-plays, videos, worksheets, experiential exercises, and homework activities, your tween will learn the following skills:

• Mindfulness (Module 1) – focusing the mind and thoughts, directing attention, understanding how you feel, and being present in the moment
• Distress Tolerance (Module 2) – how to reduce impulsivity, especially in moments of high emotional distress
• Emotion Regulation (Module 3) – how to reduce emotional intensity
• Interpersonal Relationships (Module 4) – how to form and maintain steady and healthy relationships, communicating personal needs, and getting needs met in a pro-social manner.

When: Each Module runs for 4 weeks. Participants can join at the beginning of any module and are then encouraged to attend all 4 modules (which repeat in an ongoing rotation)
