DBT skills group participants learn and practice skills alongside others. Groups are led by a trained therapist teaching skills and leading exercises. The group members are then assigned homework, such as practicing mindfulness exercises. Each group session lasts approximately two hours, and groups typically meet weekly for six months. Groups can be shorter or longer, depending on the needs of the group members.
Are you having a difficult time handling the struggles in your life?
Could you use a non-judgemental ear to listen, somebody who really understands what you’re going through?
Do you really need to talk to somebody, but you don’t know who would be willing to listen?
Do you wish you had more of a sense of community in your life, instead of feeling alone?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then dialectical behavior therapy could be the solution you’ve been seeking. DBT therapy differs from many alternative therapy methods in that it is goal oriented and teaches you specific skills and techniques to help manage stress and improve your life.
If you’ve been feeling hopeless or alone lately, or struggling with a problem in your life that feels unsurmountable, group therapy as part of DBT therapy could help you improve your everyday life.
Group therapy helps you find a sense of community with others who are going through similar things as you while giving you access to valuable therapy that can truly help you feel better.

- You keep worrying about the same problem over and over
