Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (or DBT for short) is a structured curriculum taught in a group therapy format over the course of three modules: the Emotion Regulation module, the Distress Tolerance module, and the Interpersonal Effectiveness module. Mindfulness is a foundational, or core, set of skills integrated throughout the entire curriculum.
DBT arms you with a skill set that improves emotional intelligence, assisting you in effectively dealing with previously challenging situations. DBT skills improve emotional resiliency and are designed to eliminate self-defeating and destructive beliefs and behaviors.
New participants can join when a new module begins. Now enrolling into:
DBT classes at Center for Higher Consciousness are taught/facilitated by Sarah McKelvey, MA, LPC, now being offered virtually, or in a hybrid format (a few in-person seats are available, combined with live-stream participation from the rest of the group via Zoom).
Classes run about $60/90-minute group.
Center for Higher Consciousness is now offering complimentary (free) one-hour, virtual Consultation/Information Sessions for anyone interested in joining one of our adult DBT modules in the summer/fall of 2020!

Southglenn DBT is Technology-Assisted for your convenience! Technology-Assisted means that we use apps for recording mood, behavior, and use of skills, distribute worksheets as PDF files, project materials on a screen during the group, and encourage the use of tablets and laptops. Feedback from veterans of other DBT groups indicates that integrating DBT reminders and tracking tools into existing daily technology use is helpful and convenient.
