Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) skills group for Teenagers for Help With Depression, Anxiety, Numbness, Self-Harm, Interpersonal Conflict, or Mood Instability

The Adolescent DBT skills group serves teens between the ages of 15-18 who experience chronic emotional difficulties and/or have difficulty regulating their emotions and are ready to learn and practice new skills. Primary goals of the group are to decrease self-destructive behaviors, increase effective coping skills, and create a sense of behavioral and emotional stability for the adolescent and their family. 

Topics include emotional regulation, interpersonal effectiveness, distress tolerance, reducing impulsivity, goal setting, mindfulness, learning to identify emotions, and dialectical thinking and acting (reducing the need for extremes).
