Dialectical Skills Group

Dialectical Skills Group (DSG)

All classes in the Dialectical Skills Group are meeting virtually only, for the safety and convenience of our participants and staff. Please speak with your Pine Rest therapist to find out how you can join.

 

The Dialectical Skills Group (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

This group will allow in new participants every 8 weeks.

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.

If interested, talk to your Pine Rest therapist to enroll or call our Caledonia Clinic at 616.891.8770.
