Services

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) skills group is one component of the traditional DBT treatment protocol. The skills training group meets for 5-8 weeks and focuses on skills related to one of the four major areas taught in DBT: increasing awareness of the present moment (Mindfulness), learning to tolerate painful and stressful life moments (Distress Tolerance), managing challenging relationships (Interpersonal Effectiveness), and coping with difficult emotions (Emotion Regulation). Space is limited and priority will be given to students engaged in services at UCS.
