DBT Skills Group Helps Teens:
♥Increase emotional resilience: Teens learn to recognize their feelings & how to manage big feelings skillfully. Knowing what you are feeling and why is half the battle.
♥ Handle distress or frustration, without exploding or self-destructive behavior. They get a whole toolbox of skills to get through big waves of emotion without making things worse.
♥ Practice real skills: Our experienced team teaches your teen skills to cope, and practices with them in session to support mastery for using skills when needed. We aren’t all talk-we help them take action!
♥ Create a self-care strategy: Teens make a personal plan to manage feelings, and improve self-esteem. They learn to plan ahead for tough times and have a plan for how to cope.
♥ Improve healthy communication: DBT gives teens real skills to communicate their needs, set boundaries, & build supportive relationships. They get to practice in a group setting with other teens so the skills are habit when they need them in their real life.
♥ Think rationally about problems, instead of responding to emotions. Instead of exploding or avoiding, teens learn to solve problems and make decision based on facts, not just feelings.
♥ Get accountability from peers and leaders to use skills instead of negative behaviors, and stay on track. Group helps your teen have a place to check in how they are using skills in their daily life, and challenges them to see where they could do things differently.
Gain Support & Connection
We offer local groups in The Woodlands and Spring, and occasional online groups for Texans. Teens crave connection with other teens and this group offers that support within a structured yet supportive environment.
Experienced leaders focus on learning new skills while making connections with similar peers. They help teens avoid conversation about toxic or destructive thoughts or behaviors during the group. The focus is on real change not just talking about issues week after week. Our goal is for your teen to have skills for life-so they don’t need therapy to just survive.
