We are currently running four DBT skills groups, one specifically for Intellectual disability which meets every Tuesday from 3:30pm to 4:30pm, one every Wednesday from 9:30am to 11:00am, one every Friday from 5:30pm to 7:00pm for adolescents, and one every Saturday from 1:00pm to 2:30pm.
All of our groups are hosted by Amy Long, Psy.D, LPC. & Danny Montoya, MA.
These skill groups teach Mindfulness, Emotion Regulation, Interpersonal Effectiveness, and Distress Tolerance skills. Utilizing experiential activities and group processing to integrate skills into daily life. Clients are required to be receiving concurrent individual treatment. Groups will focus on the essentials of DBT while addressing the concerns of each individual.
Our two adults groups (Wed/Sat) focus more on the everyday struggles of work/life balance and how using these skills day to day can help people achieve better personal relationships as well as more fulfillment at work.
Our Tuesday group is Social Skills training for young adults with intellectual disability. This group teaches the same skills and utilizes the same principles but is presented in a way that makes understanding and applying these skills easy and fun.
Our adolescent group uses lots of experiential tools and practices to keep the group engaged and actively learning.
We hope you will join us for one of these groups, and allow us to share our knowledge and love of DBT with you.
