Our Dialectical Behaviour Therapy – Brief (DBT-Brief) programme provides skills-based group therapy for people who struggle with chronic emotion dysregulation and unhelpful behavioural patterns. Research has shown brief DBT skills groups offer an effective treatment approach for improving mood, increasing emotion regulation, and developing helpful coping responses.

Outcomes

The program teaches participants emotional regulation and interpersonal skills, as well as mindfulness and distress tolerance. It helps reduce any therapy interfering behaviour. Participants will acknowledge and challenge thought patterns to determine whether they serve their life goals, and learn to replace destructive behaviours with positive thought and powerful actions.

Along with attending the group, participants will have individual sessions to construct their own wellness plans where required.
