Group Therapy

Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skill Group

Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills Group for Eating Disorder Recovery.

DBT Skills group includes four modules taught over the course of 24 weeks (Mindfulness, Emotion Regulation, Interpersonal Effectiveness, and Distress Tolerance). DBT Skills group requires a commitment to working towards abstinence of target behaviors (restricting, bingeing, purging, over-exercising, self-harm, etc.). Each group lasts an hour and forty-five minutes. Each week, new skills are taught and homework is assigned between groups to practice and generalize skills.

Group members must participate in weekly individual therapy in addition to skills group. This can be with other therapists in the community. Members are required to complete diary cards each day to monitor thoughts, feelings, behaviors and skills utilized. Members also have the option of utilizing phone coaching with group therapists between groups to help generalize skills. If you are interested in joining the DBT skills group, please give us a call.
