*Due to high demand, we have added a second section of the DBT Skill group for summer 2018. Both sections have openings at this time.*
Who: Teens, ages 14-17.
What: DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) psychoeducational skills group that teaches core mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness skills. Please note: This is a skills group; not an intensive DBT program.
Please read Sentier's writing about What is DBT?

Why: So that teens can learn to identify thinking patterns that often lead to extreme emotions, impulsiveness and self-destructive behavior. Group will teach coping skills that can be used to control thoughts, tolerate distress and effectively communicate with others.
How: If you have a teen who is interested in participating in the DBT Skills group, please email Katie Fleuriet at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 763.913.8261 to schedule an intake session. A group Intake session must be completed one week prior to group starting.
Fees: $75 per group session. Client is charged for missed sessions, as group attendance is critical. Insurance reimbursement receipts are automatically provided to clients in our online client portal.
*Please note that this is not a full, DBT intensive program. The group does not include individual weekly therapy with a DBT therapist or phone coaching calls between sessions. This is a psychoeducational group that has been condensed into 10 weeks and does not cover every DBT skill.
