Thank you for considering joining our DBT group at Diversified Counseling and Consulting Services.
People needing to develop interpersonal skills, distress tolerance and emotional regulation can benefit greatly from this type of therapy. If you have seen another therapist who has recommended DBT classes for you, please let us know when you call. We do require that you see one of our therapists here in order to participate in our group. Our therapists must know each client and their unique needs in order to tailor the class activities for effective therapy.
The standard DBT protocol teaches mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, emotional regulation skills and distress tolerance skills. The therapist in charge of the session will use a variety of methods to best reach the goals for the group members in attendance.
Group size does fluctuate from meeting to meeting. The general group size is four to six members.
Our DBT group meets every other Tuesday from 12:00 noon to 1:00pm, the cost is $15.00. We are currently meeting on the telehealth platform doxy.me. due to COVID 19. DBT is not covered by insurance, this is an out of pocket cost.
There will be homework given during each class which you are expected to complete in order to get the most out of the class. Active participation is expected in each class.
