Willow Tree Psychology and Wellbeing are excited to offer the following DBT Skills Groups

 

DBT skills group program for parent/caregivers and their child - 2 hour weekly group for 20 weeks

and

DBT skills group for adults - 2.5 hour weekly group for 20 weeks

 

These group programs will benefit those who experience and have difficulty with overwhelming and intense emotions that are extremely difficult to manage; difficulty with and maintaining relationships and friendships, impulsive or risky behaviours, those who are self-harming and/or self-harming behaviours. This program will also benefit those with a diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder. The aim of these group programs is to learn specific skills to manage crisis, regulate emotions, build positive relationships with family and friends, manage distress and solve problems without self- harming.

 

WHAT IS DBT?

DBT is an effective treatment for people who have difficulty controlling their emotions and behaviours.

DBT aims to replace problem behaviours with skillful behaviours.

DBT skills help people experience a range of emotions without necessarily acting on those emotions.

DBT skills help teens navigate relationships in their environment (family/school/ peers).

DBT helps people create a life worth living.

 

WHAT DOES "DIALECTICAL" MEAN?

Dialectical = two opposite ideas can be true at the same time, and when considered together, can create a new truth and a new way of viewing the situation. There is always more than one way to think about a situation.
