Classes & Therapy Groups

Dialectical Skills Group

Meeting Options: Choose from weekly virtual classes available on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Registration: If interested, talk to your Pine Rest therapist to enroll.

The Dialectical Skills Groups (DSG) virtual therapy classes are based on Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). Participants in the group will be introduced to the same skills training as those that go through the full DBT program, but in a more concise format and requiring a lower level of commitment.

You may benefit from joining this group if you struggle with:

  • Intense emotions
  • Relationship problems
  • Impulsive behaviors
  • Suicidal ideation
  • Chronic feelings of emptiness
  • Addictive behaviors

Topics that will be covered include:

  • Mindfulness
  • Distress tolerance
  • Emotional regulation
  • Interpersonal effectiveness

DSG participants will be given homework assignments which they are expected to complete to remain active in the program.

To be eligible for this group, participants MUST have a Pine Rest therapist that they meet with at least every other week for individual therapy.
