Is your teen struggling to manage their emotions, thoughts, and behaviors? Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a type of therapy that can help teens learn how to cope with difficult emotions and situations in a healthy way.
Our virtual DBT group for teens is led by a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner and meets every Monday-Thursday from 6-8pm starting December 4, 2023 for 3 weeks.
In this group, teens will learn the four pillars of DBT:
- Mindfulness: Paying attention to the present moment without judgment.
- Distress tolerance: Managing difficult emotions without engaging in harmful behaviors.
- Emotion regulation: Changing the intensity and duration of emotions.
- Interpersonal effectiveness: Communicating and interacting with others in a healthy and assertive way.
Teens will also have the opportunity to practice these skills in a supportive and confidential environment.
