Groups teaching behavioral and emotional management for stress reduction.
DBT Skills Group is a form of group therapy that leans more towards a classroom-like arrangement, where members of the group are taught about the skill being tackled. Participants can also engage, at their own preference, and share their experiences and approaches in situations related to the skill they’re learning about, giving them a chance to also learn from each other.
At the end of each class, everyone gets assigned tasks that will help them practice the skill before the next session.
The explanation of each skill was quite clear and organized. Yasmin and Yasminah are super nice and were always open to the questions asked; they encouraged us and tried their best to get us to understand the points we missed. Additionally, the stories we've engaged in opened many discussions and solidified some of the skills we've taken. Both the Psychologists (Yasmin & Yasminah) and the Participants were pleasant, and the sessions were a safe place to learn without judgements which made the overall experience delightful.

What I liked most was the open discussions, the relevance of the material as we were working with the official Marsha L. workbook, and the members of the group and how open& supportive they are!

Although DBT skills groups encourage group member engagement and feedback, a classroom-like component exists because a new skill is taught each week.
One of the advantages of joining a DBT skills group is that each group member contributes their own experiences and approaches to specific skills and situations. This opportunity to learn together and from each other's experiences allows us to discover new strategies for problems.
