Family and Friends DBT Foundational Skills Group | Saturdays | 9am to 11am

Dialectical Behavior Therapy helps everyone in the family unit to live a "life worth living"- there's no need to have a diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) in order to benefit from DBT. This group is offered for family and close friends of individuals with BPD, chronic suicidal and/or self-harm behaviors, or high stress and conflict in relationships. The group focuses on the foundations of DBT coping skills and includes core skills of Mindfulness, Interpersonal Effectiveness, Emotion Regulation, and Distress Tolerance. Group members will also learn dialectics, the biosocial theory, validation, and chain analysis. Group members will have an opportunity to learn new skills, practice the skills between groups and return to group to discuss experiences and ways to increase effectiveness. All group members must agree to complete a preliminary intake session with the group leader and participate in the full 12-week rotation.
