Coping Tools for Today’s Teens
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a state-of-the-art, evidence-based form of cognitive behavioral therapy for teenagers and adults who experience significant trouble managing their emotions, thoughts and behaviors.
DBT teaches how to practice mindfulness, the ability to be fully present in the moment, and how to focus on one thing at a time. Instruction in problem-solving, combined with mindfulness, provides teens and young adults with the tools to act positively in difficult and stressful situations.
DBT can help teens and young adults navigate many life stressors including:
- Anger outbursts
- Frequent mood swings
- Depression and anxiety
- Impulsive/disruptive behaviors
- Self-injurious and suicidal behaviors
- Eating disordered behaviors
- Family and peer conflict
- Drug or alcohol abuse
- Poor coping skills
This weekly group begins April 20, 2022, and will meet in person and provide the support and skills needed to live in the moment, keep emotions in balance, respond to stress better, build better relationships, and improve self esteem.
