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.


  • All current and upcoming 8 week DBT modules will be held via Zoom (an online digital group format). 
  • Due to telehealth and licensure laws, all skills class participants must reside in the state of Georgia. 
  • Participants will be provided with a PDF version of materials and link to the class meeting via Zoom following completion of registration and payment. Although there is a change in class format, there will be no additional fees.
