Online DBT Skills Groups

Our online 12-week DBT skills groups are carefully designed to provide you with effective coping strategies to help you manage emotional and interpersonal difficulties. Participants learn to use DBT techniques including mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation and interpersonal effectiveness. Participants will be provided with learning materials and are expected to complete weekly skills homework assignments. Our program is open to adolescents (14-18) and adults (18+) in Ontario and will include up to 10 participants. The group will be facilitated by a Registered Social Worker and receipts for insurance purposes can be made available upon request.

What coping skills will I learn?

Mindfulness

Skills that enhance present moment focus, reduce judgmental thoughts, increase self-compassion and create greater discernment when making decisions.

Distress

Tolerance

Skills that help to reduce intense emotions and accept the reality during distressing moments, so that you can get through overwhelming situations by tolerating the distress rather than avoiding it.

Emotion

Regulation

Skills that increase your capacity to acknowledge and accept your emotions, reduce unpleasant emotions (i.e. anxiety, anger, shame) and increase the frequency of pleasant ones.

Interpersonal Effectiveness

Skills that improve relationships, communication and interactions with others, while enhancing your ability to navigate challenging interpersonal situations.
