The session is 1hr and 10 mins and runs from 4.30-5.40, where you will learn the DBT skills, in a small group along with Alicia and Nic (or Katie and Jo!), our specialist adolescent DBT therapists. The full course is 21 weeks.
The goals of the group are to support you to emotionally regulate, better manage distress, and to be able to live happier, without the need to act on your triggers with behaviours that have negative consequences for you.
Including weekly group training sessions on Fridays from 4:30 – 5:40 and individual sessions, DBT is a therapy designed to help you change patterns of behaviour that are not effective, such as self-harm, suicidal thinking and substance abuse. The approach works towards helping you increase your emotional and cognitive regulation by learning about the triggers that lead to reactive states.
The full DBT programme involves both DBT Skills group training and weekly individual sessions. It can also involve skills coaching between sessions subject to need.
The full programme is the most effective and quickest route to making changes in your life, and reaching your therapy goals.
The DBT skills groups run online, and run more like a class. The DBT therapists teach you DBT skills from the Linehan skills training manual. We cover a number of key modules including mindfulness skills, distress tolerance, emotional regulation and interpersonal skills.
If you’re looking for help managing your Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) or Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder, our online DBT programme can deliver results that deliver immense changes to your life.
