DBT Skills Classes

We offer our DBT skills classes for a range of age groups and areas of focus. The DBT skills are divided into three different modules (distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness) where the first two weeks of each module focus solely on mindfulness skills. The class modules are offered one at a time and are conducted in a lecture-based format. DBT skills classes are psycho-educational and not process-oriented.
