DBT Skills Classes

Our DBT skills classes are offered for a range of age groups and areas of focus. The classes are divided into three modules - distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness. Modules are eight weeks long, and the first two weeks of each module are focused solely on mindfulness skills. The classes are conducted in a lecture-based format and are psychoeducational in nature. DBT skills classes are not process-oriented.

Registration for our current DBT skills class module, Emotion Regulation, is closed. This module began the week of January 8th, 2018 and ends the week of March 5th, 2018.

Registration for our upcoming module, Interpersonal Effectiveness, will open Monday, February 26th, 2018. This module will begin the week of March 19th, 2018 and ends the week of May 7th, 2018.

To learn more about each skills module, please refer to our DBT Skills page.
