Adolescent DBT Group
Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) is a structured therapeutic intervention aimed to help individuals struggling with intense emotional distress. DBT was initially formed to assist individuals with borderline personality disorder and those who self harmed or suffered from suicidal ideation. It has now been expanded as an effective, evidence-based therapy for a wide range of emotional and relational challenges.
The DBT group meets weekly and focuses on skill building in four main categories: mindfullness interpersonal effectiveness, distress tolerance, and emotion regulation.
The DBT group fosters a safe therapeutic environment for adolescents to connect with peers while building healthy life-long coping strategies to help them manage challenges in this stage of life.
