Suffolk DBT Psychological Services's Groups

Adolescent DBT Groups

The DBT skills group is an didactic skills group that aims to help clients learn, understand, and apply skills out of each DBT module (Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Emotion Regulation, and Interpersonal Effectiveness). Groups begin with a mindfulness practice and homework review from the previous week. Each group session will teach a specific skill and provide an opportunity to discuss successful planning and implementation of the skill and factors that could make the skill challenging to master. There is a separate parent group that takes place weekly where parents/family members learn the same skills that the child is learning.

Middle School DBT Program

This DBT Program treats Middle Schoolers with a variety of diagnoses including depression, anxiety, ADD, ADHD, OCD, emotion regulation disorders, self-harm/impulse disorders, and eating disorders. Our DBT Program for Middle Schoolers teaches the full set of DBT Skills to kids and their parents (so that parents can reinforce the skills at home during the week), with homework to review throughout the week. It takes 6 months to go through all four DBT modules (Distress Tolerance, Emotion Regulation, Mindfulness, Interpersonal Effectiveness). Individuals in our DBT program must be in weekly individual therapy. A Parent must attend.
