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 this group, please email Alyssa Haggerty at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 763.913.8261 x4 to schedule an intake session. 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.
