This 6-session seminar will teach core Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) skills to help relationships, depression, anger, and impulsive control. DBT was the first effective therapy for Borderline Personality Disorder and has also been helpful for people with mood swings due to bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, or a major life crisis.
The seminar is different from traditional group therapy in that it involves active learning of new skills, rather than open-ended processing. You will take an active role in monitoring your progress as you learn and apply new skills to build a better life.
Most insurances cover the group, and we also offer sliding-scale program for out-of-pocket costs. The actual cost will depend on your insurance and income but ranges from $120-240 (for 6 weekly sessions, 1.5 hours each). There is a $75 deposit due to reserve your spot and the balance is due before or on the day of the session.
We offer skill-building courses throughout the year. Contact us to reserve a spot in the next group. The exact times will depend on everyone’s schedule – including your own – so let us know your preferences and we’ll work to set a time that fits.
Next group: Starts January 2018
