Unlock Potential At Our Teen DBT Summer Camp:

  • Is your teen struggling with overwhelming emotions?
  • Do you want them to learn skills to manage stress and build healthier relationships?
  • Join us for an empowering summer at our Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) camp!🌈

Monday: Mindfulness & DBT WiseMind, Validation

Teens will learn to tune into their thoughts and emotions and “Wise Mind” so that they can feel big emotions while also making safe, healthy and effective decisions, without impulsive behaviors that often make the situation worse. Your teen will learn mindfulness practices to increase self-awareness and how to objectively describe objects (then emotions).

Tuesday: Thinking Traps & Correction Skills, Dialectics

Teens will learn to challenge all/nothing thinking and find the truth in both sides of any position they are noticing. This will cultivate collaboration and understanding rather than competition or winning a point. 

Your teen will learn to recognize irrational thoughts, self-criticisms and judgments so they can rebuild a positive self-image and use skills to improve understanding in their relationships.

Wednesday: Building a Toolbox: Distress Tolerance Skills

Your teen will learn the ACCEPTS, self-soothe and IMPROVE the moment skills to get through moments that are tough when they can’t change or solve the problem right away. This is the concrete toolbox of coping skills that’ll help your teen in everyday stressful situations to prevent them from escalating into crises.

Thursday: Radical Acceptance & Opposite Action

Your teen will practice acceptance of difficult thoughts and situations and learn to navigate life’s difficulties in ways that open up opportunity, rather than keeping them stuck in suffering and struggle.

Your teen will learn exposure strategies to endure emotions that are safe but uncomfortable so that they can feel their feelings in healthy ways that allow them to form closer connections and better express themselves.
