What is DBT?

DBT is a therapeutic modality that can help you learn to cope with difficult emotions. DBT helps people obtain a life worth living, learn essential life skills, and develop a greater sense of self-control. This group aims to help you understand and apply the four DBT skills: mindfulness, distress tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness, and emotional regulation.

What to Expect?

The group will be led by our Registered Psychotherapists and Social Workers. We follow a structured curriculum and focus on teaching a new skill each week, homework review, practicing skills, and discussions.
