Frequently Asked Questions
What is Dialectical Behavior Therapy?
Dialectical Behavior Therapy, or DBT, is an evidence-based therapy designed to help people manage intense emotions, impulsive behaviors and difficult relationships. It was originally developed to help individuals who were suicidal or self-injured, but since then we have learned that DBT skills can help people with a lot of different problems, including those with addiction, eating disorders and emotional dysregulation. DBT skills are practical strategies to help people settle down, communicate more effectively, tolerate distress or discomfort, and better manage their emotions.
What ages are the groups for?
We offer groups for adults (age 18 and up) and adolescents (ages 13-17).
What is the class format?
Adult groups meet online using Google Meet and adolescent groups are in person. Groups meet once weekly and homework assignments are provided.
How much does it cost?
The cost is $360 for twelve week groups and $240 for eight week groups. Payment plans are available.
