What is Taught in a Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills Group?
​​Problematic behaviors evolve as a way to cope with difficult situations or attempt to solve a problem. While these behaviors might provide temporary relief, they often are not effective in the long-term. DBT assumes that clients are doing the best they can, AND they need to learn new behaviors in all relevant contexts.​

The function of DBT Skills is to help enhance a client’s capabilities. There are four skills taught in DBT:​
 Mindfulness: the practice of being fully aware and present in this one moment​
 Distress Tolerance: how to tolerate pain in difficult situations, not change it​
 Interpersonal Effectiveness: how to ask for what you want and say no while maintaining self-respect and relationships with others​
 Emotion Regulation: how to change emotions that you want to change​


​Skills training is frequently taught in groups during weekly sessions, and the full skills curriculum runs for 24 weeks.  Join a Dialectical Behavior Skills group to improve your ability to thrive in everyday life.  Visit www.mountainDBT.com or email jill@mountainDBT.com to learn more and to
