Village Psychology’s DBT groups are for young adults who are ready to go from being overwhelmed by emotions to creating a life they truly love, even when that seems impossible to imagine.
A DBT group might be a good fit for you if you:
Feel overwhelmed by intense emotions and don’t understand why each day is so hard when life seems so much easier for everyone else
Struggle in relationships that leave you feeling lonely
Self-harm or engage in other destructive patterns
Avoid creative projects you used to enjoy

DBT group members learn skills in 4 modules:
skills for increasing focus, awareness, and self-compassion
skills for reducing harmful behaviors, accepting painful realities, and managing addictions
skills for identifying and understanding your emotions and strategies to change the emotion when you choose to do so
skills for improving relationships while asking for what you need and keeping self-respect
DBT Skills Training Groups
are for people who are new to DBT skills or who want a skills refresher. Skills training classes run for 24 sessions, with the option to complete the cycle twice for a full year of skills training. Group members are required to be in ongoing individual therapy.
Advanced/Graduate DBT Skills Integration Groups
are for people who have completed a skills training group or program and would like group support to continue to apply the skills to different environments and relationships. Skills integration groups require a 16-session commitment, with the option to continue if recommended.
