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.

Our current module, Distress Tolerance, began the week of November 5th and ends the week of December 17th. Class will not be held the week of November 19th in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday.

To learn more about each skills module, please refer to our DBT Skills page. You can also reach out to us using our online contact form to obtain more information.
