A new, contemporary spin on Dialectical Behavior group therapy will be continuing June 7, 2018!
After a successful and effective spring session of Distress Tolerance, the summer session of technology-assisted DBT Skills Group is starting on June 7th in Southglenn. I will be facilitating the Emotion Regulation module for 8 weeks, ending July 26.
What is DBT Group Therapy?
DBT group therapy arms you with an arsenal of tools that improve emotional intelligence and assists you in dealing effectively with previously challenging situations. DBT skills improve emotional resiliency and seek to eliminate self-defeating behaviors.

More about DBT
Dialectical-Behavior Therapy is one of the most empirically researched therapy modalities for treating people who suffer from significant emotional dysregulation and prolonged relationship difficulties. First conceived in the 1980s, DBT was systematically designed to help people build concrete, practical skills for mindful self-awareness, emotional development, stress management, and the cultivation of a baseline of well-being.

Technology-assisted for your convenience:
We use apps for diary cards, distribute worksheets as PDF files, project materials on a screen during the group, and encourage the use of tablets and laptops. Feedback from veterans of other DBT groups indicates that integrating DBT reminders and tracking into existing daily technology use is helpful and convenient.
