Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
Skills Groups

Groups teaching behavioral and emotional management for stress reduction.

What are DBT Skills Groups?

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.

Previous Cycle Feedback

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.

How it works?

DBT teaches you 4 skills: Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Interpersonal Effectiveness, and Emotional Regulation.

Group members meet weekly for 2 hours, and each cycle lasts approximately 7 weeks.

There is no order in which you have to attend the group; you can start a DBT skills group at any cycle.

To be able to join a group, you must also attend one-on-one therapy sessions alongside the group.

DBT Skills


Mindfulness teaches you to be consciously aware of yourself and your surroundings at the present moment, no matter what you’re doing.

Distress Tolerance

If you experience intense distress, Distress Tolerance teaches you the skills that will help you tolerate distress effectively and overcome difficult situations that come your way.

Interpersonal Effectiveness

Interpersonal Effectiveness helps you maintain healthy relationships by getting your needs, while also being respectful to yourself and to other people in your life.

Emotional Regulation

This teaches how emotions work and equips you with skills to manage them, freeing you from their overwhelming influence. It minimizes susceptibility to negative emotions while enabling you to welcome positive emotional moments.

It’s More Like A Class

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.
