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 where the first two weeks of each module focus solely on mindfulness skills. The classes 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 Participants are required to be under the care of a mental health clinician over the duration of class who they visit at least every two weeks.
