Group Therapy – DB Therapy with Nabiel
Using Marsha Linehan’s approach to Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) designed to support individuals suffering from borderline personality disorder, depression, bulimia, binge-eating, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic-stress disorder, and substance abuse disorder, this group’s focus is to equip clients with skills that are geared to improve their ability to regulate emotions and tolerate distress.
The aim of this group is to provide clients with new skills to manage painful emotions and decrease conflict in relationships.
Our DBT group sessions specifically focus on providing therapeutic skills in four key areas. First, mindfulness focuses on improving an individual’s ability to accept and be present in the current moment. Second, distress tolerance is geared toward increasing a person’s tolerance of negative emotion, rather than trying to escape from it. Third, emotion regulation covers strategies to manage and change intense emotions that are causing problems in a person’s life. Fourth, interpersonal effectiveness consists of techniques that allow a person to communicate with others in a way that is assertive, maintains self-respect, and strengthens relationships.
Groups per week: 5 x group sessions per week
