A weekly skills building group dedicated to teaching, practicing, and reviewing DBT skills. These skills are designed to help individuals diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, Borderline or Histrionic Personality Disorder, highly reactive emotions, relationship difficulties, and pervasive depression. DBT has been shown to be helpful in stabilizing a number of psychological symptoms, especially those that are resistant to treatment.
