DIALECTICAL BEHAVIORAL THERAPY (DBT) SKILLS GROUPS FOR Middle SCHOOLERS

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a skills-based approach that teaches cognitive techniques to help your middle schooler make healthy and effective choices to create a life they will love and be proud of.

DBT is the balance of change and acceptance held in the belief that your middle schooler has the desire and ability to grow and change. The skills they will learn can make a significant impact on their future success.
