DBT Skills Group for Teens forming for Wednesdays 4:15 –
Teen 14-Week Summer 2020
This is a highly structured academic program, with weekly handouts, worksheets and gentle goal setting.
Between classes, students are willing to commit to 5-10 minutes/day of DBT Skills practice. Students learn to share their feelings in relation to the DBT skills they are practicing.
This is not group therapy, where one person may talk for 30 minutes. Everyone gets a chance to speak, and we are mindful of the fair use of the time. Enrollment is limited to 12 students.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):
· What are the DBT Fees and Refund Policy? Please note: Group sessions are $50/week for each 90-minute session, paid in full before course begins. I used to collect weekly checks, but then people would come and go “when not in the mood to show up” and there was no commitment. Paying in full inspires participants to have “skin in the game” and the group becomes more cohesive quickly, producing successful results and powerful transformations.
· How long is each module? We cover all four modules in the course of one year, during three 14-week trimesters, for a total 42 weeks. (We skip holidays, school breaks and Holy Days.) Each group session is 90 minutes.
· How many students are in each group? All DBT groups need a minimum of six participants, and a maximum of 12.
What is the Open Enrollment Period? The Open
Enrollment Period (OEP) allows participants to join up to four weeks
after first group session started.
