Dialectical Behaviour Therapy Skills Program (20 Weeks)

What is Dialectical Behaviour Therapy?

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) is an extension of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). DBT is evidence-based and aims to improve an individual’s capacity to live in the present moment, develop healthy ways to cope with stress, regulate their emotions, and improve their social skills and relationships. The underlying objective of DBT is to bring together the two opposing concepts of acceptance and change.

DBT is suitable for individuals with a range of presenting problems including but not limited to, anxiety, depression, personality disorders, difficulty regulating emotions, interpersonal difficulties, addiction, and impulsive behaviours.

About the Program

This program is open to adults (18 and over) and will focus on the four DBT skill areas of:

  • Mindfulness
  • Emotion Regulation
  • Distress Tolerance
  • Interpersonal Effectiveness

Group members will gain skills to practice self-acceptance and constructive change and work together with the facilitators to resolve perceived contradictions between these.
