Acceptance & Change: A DBT Skills Group Week 9
From 17-03-2021 4:00 PM
To 17-03-2021 7:30 PM

DBT is an evidence-based therapy originally designed for individuals with a diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder, but it can also be helpful for anyone with difficulty tolerating intense and distressing emotions and experiences. This group is for young people aged 16-25 years who experience intense or painful emotions and who would like to learn helpful ways of coping with their distress. This program is a 12 week skills group.

Research suggests that brief skills training groups have been shown to lead to a decrease in unhelpful behaviours and an improvement in coping skills. (McMain et al., 2016).

Objectives:       

1. To provide a supportive group space where young people can accept themselves as they are while also acknowledging that they can continue to develop skills and improve their quality of life.

2. To provide an opportunity to learn four types of skills to help with distress: how to be mindful, how to cope with distress, how to regulate emotions, and how to manage relationships effectively.

3. To provide opportunities for discussion and debriefing of practice of skills applied.

On completion:             

Participants will receive a certificate of recognition for:

1. Improved self-awareness and acceptance.

2. Acquired skills including mindfulness, coping with distress and emotional regulation and interpersonal effectiveness .

To 22-04-2021 3:45 PM
This group is for young adults aged 16-25 who would like to connect in a group environment to work towards improving their mental health. Humans are social beings, and research tells us that the benefit of safe social connections that offer shared experiences and a sense of belonging cannot be underestimated (Department of Health). The group will include education and practice of different therapeutic skills combined with different educational topics (cyber safety, drugs and alcohol, sleep, healthy relationships to name a few) and will be an activity based, flexible group.
