For teens who like to learn and want to gain mastery in Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Interpersonal Effectiveness and Emotion Regulation skills for peak performance in all areas of their life.

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.


DBT MasterMind Group

Once a month on Mondays, 7:30 – 9:00 PM.

 

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):

 

 

·      What is Dialectical Behavior Therapy?

 

·       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.

 

·        Can I read reviews of this program? Yes, here are some testimonials from former and current DBT students.  There are also videos with former students.

 

·        What are the five steps to DBT enrollment?

 

 

·        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.

 

 

·       Moving beyond binary thinking: what are dialectical and non-dualistical truths?

 

 

·       What about teen safety and boundaries in the group setting?  

 

·       What is the Open Enrollment Period?  The Open Enrollment Period (OEP) allows participants to join up to four weeks after first group session started.
