DBT groups provide skills and support to individuals who are looking to better regulate their emotions and find greater ease in their lives.

Skills Taught

  1. Mindfulness: Increasing presence and self-awareness across situations.
  2. Distress Tolerance: Learning how to survive a difficult situation without making it worse.
  3. Emotional Regulation: Teaching skills that help patients understand and experience their feelings in a less overwhelming way.
  4. Interpersonal Effectiveness: Helping clients strengthen both personal and professional relationships and gain insight into their relational patterns.
Denver DBT’s entire program takes approximately 45 weeks to complete. We divide the skill sets into 8-10 week modules with review at the end of each module. Repeating the program two or three times allows for increased proficiency. Many people find this additional practice quite helpful in honing their DBT skills. Our groups are “open” in that (after completing the intake process and as long as there is availability) individuals may start at any time during the modules.
