Learn Effective Coping Strategies for Overwhelming Emotions & Improve Interpersonal Relationships
- Does it seem that your emotions are out of your control?
- Are you struggling with intense or overwhelming feelings of anger, sadness, frustration, nervousness and more?
- Is emotional reactivity making it difficult to get your needs met in relationships?
- Have your strong, unpredictable feelings led to issues in your relationships, career or life in general?
- Do you wish you could better manage your emotions, feel more in control and create stability in your relationships, career and life?
- Do you find yourself struggling to build or maintain relationships?
A DBT Skills Group will help you:
- Evaluate and understand your emotions so they know how to respond to them instead of reacting and making the situation worse with self-destructive behaviors
- Communicate effectively and maintain positive relationships with friends, family and teachers when intense emotions make relating to others in a healthy way challenging
- Gain confidence to ask for help when life gets overwhelming and to say “no” to others when needed
- Discover how to mindfully and fully enjoy each moment of your life, even when responsibilities have piled up and you are feeling overwhelmed
Our Houston-based Dialectical Behavioral Therapy group focuses on four major skill areas.
Mindfulness: develop skills to accept thoughts and urges without criticizing or impulsively acting on them. Learn to stay in the present moment without ruminating on the past or worrying about the future.
Interpersonal Effectiveness: learn strategies for asking for what you need, saying no and coping with interpersonal conflict.
