WiseBeing: Mindfulness, DBT Skills Group Currently Online Only
WiseBeing Skills Group is a series of specialized skills classes that draw upon the evidenced-based skills of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), a mindfulness-based behavioral change model combining cognitive-behavioral therapy from western psychology with eastern philosophy that teaches how to experience emotions, relationships, and distress in effective and meaningful ways. This specialized training program can be useful for people looking to build upon their effectiveness in, and improve their quality of life.
DBT skills help people cope better with: • Strong reactivity to stress • Difficulty controlling and letting go of emotions • Relationship disharmony • Self-doubt • Mood-driven and Impulsive Behaviors • Intense fear of abandonment • Depression, Anxiety, Trauma and Grief Issues • Substance misuse
DBT skills training modules, with mindfulness skills at the core, are: Emotion Regulation, Interpersonal Effectiveness and Distress Tolerance. The class meets weekly for 2 hours. Each group begins with a brief mindfulness practice, followed by a review of the previous week’s lesson and then introduction of new material. Homework with worksheets is assigned to support you in practicing and reinforcing the skills training during the week. These psycho-education skills can be an additional support to those already in therapy with other practitioners.
Costs: Individual screening and orientation session is $140. Each group session is $60. For Relationship and Family DBT skills sessions, please call for details and pricing.
Upcoming dates: Monday skills group, 6pm to 8pm. Next group series, Interpersonal Effectiveness module, begins Monday, September 27, 2021 from 6p to 8p. Online only.
