Skills Training Groups

What is a skill group?

A skill group focuses on acquiring new tools and strategies for dealing with certain challenges and with day-to-day life.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Skills Groups

DBT Skills training, as developed by Marsha M.Linehan, is specifically designed to address emotion dysregulation and its consequences. There are four separate DBT skills modules: Mindfulness, Emotion Regulation, Interpersonal Effectiveness and Distress Tolerance.

Group effectiveness

Learning skills in a group setting has a lot to offer. Individuals have the opportunity to interact with other people having the same area of concern as them. Belonging to a group that is working towards the same goal increases the commitment to and motivation for the practice that it is required. The group provides the environment of acceptance and support needed for any growth. Individuals in a group get to learn from one another too, being provided with different avenues for development.  At the same time, every group can provide its members with valuable information about themselves and their interpersonal behaviors.


Teaches skills on mindfulness practice. That is, the act of consciously focusing the mind on, being aware of and participating in the moment. It is also the ability to accept in a non-judgmental and effective way both oneself and the current situation.

Emotion Regulation

Teaches skills on understanding and naming emotions, on changing unwanted emotions, on reducing vulnerability to emotion mind, and on managing extreme emotions.

Interpersonal Effectiveness

Teaches skills on assertiveness and interpersonal problem-solving, on developing and maintaining relationships or ending destructive relationships, on balancing acceptance and change in relationships.

Distress Tolerance

Teaches skills on how to make a painful situation more tolerable, on how to get through a crisis without making things worse, on accepting the reality of oneself and current situation as it is.
