DBT Groups 

"Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) groups are offered thrice per year, on a semester-by-semester basis. If you are interested in participating in a group, please complete the “Client Interest Form” under the “Forms” tab and select “yes” for group therapy. You will then be contacted for phone screening, after which you will be added to our list of those interested in services. Due to the high volume of inquiries we receive about DBT group and limited resources as a training clinic, we are not able to respond to inquiries as they are received. If you submit an application, we will send you a recruiting e-mail in the weeks leading up to the next DBT group. We typically send recruitment e-mails to those who have completed an application: (1) early to mid January, (2) late April to early May, and (3) late August to early September.

Requirements for participation in DBT group:
1. Receiving ongoing psychotherapy with an individual therapist.
2. Completion of an “Intake session,” which includes orientation to the DBT group as well as a short assessment."
