Often people tend to cope with extreme emotional fluctuations using behaviors that are effective on the short-term, but often lead to other negative consequences (hospitalizations, loss of friends, negative reactions by family/spouse). These coping behaviors can include self-injury of some type, substance use/abuse, risk-taking behaviors, and more. This is a 70 minute group in which the essential DBT skills are taught to group members through a weekly presentation which includes practice time within the group session. This group runs for 12 week intervals. Each member of the group must have an individual therapist that they are currently working with on a regular basis. This group is intended to be an adjunct service to individual therapy, not a replacement for it. Groups consist of 5-8 individuals.
