DBT Skills Groups

DBT skills groups are psychoeducational in nature and are more like a class than a traditional psychotherapeutic group.  The curriculum is 6 months long and includes four primary modules; Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Emotion Regulation and Interpersonal Effectiveness.  Clients cannot opt to solely attend group since the research demonstrates that DBT is most effective when there is both individual DBT sessions and DBT skills group. 

Group admission requires an intake evaluation to assess for the appropriateness of DBT for the presenting issues/diagnoses.  Once need for DBT is determined, client then begins the process of pre-treatment to prepare for group.  This can take any where from 2 sessions to as many as 6 sessions.  After the completion of pre-treatment (i.e. when the client understands the treatment approach and is ready to enter group,) s/he will begin group at the next transition session which is between the modules taught in a standard DBT curriculum.  Each module is roughly 6-8 weeks.
