WHAT IS FSC COMMUNITY SOLUTIONS UP TO?
HIGH SCHOOL ENGAGEMENT
DBT Skills Group
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a comprehensive behavioral intervention designed to treat individuals who struggle with difficulty regulating emotions and problematic cognitive and behavioral patterns. In Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, “dialectical” means the integration of opposites (aka- finding the balance between opposites). In DBT, the main “dialectical” tension, or balance, is between the opposite ideas of ACCEPTANCE and CHANGE. In this framework, DBT therapists balance treatment strategies of validation and problem solving. Skills taught in DBT treatment include mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness. The group has met the schools schedule to help meet the teens where they are at both physically and emotionally.
