Emotions can be challenging. People can be challenging. Life itself can be challenging.

DBT skills provide the tools to cope with and master these difficulties.

For those struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma/PTSD, substance misuse, disordered eating, or with any other difficulties managing emotions and relationships, Miami DBT is an evidence-based treatment that can reduce distress, increase coping, and help create a life worth living.

Our Miami DBT skills group covers:

1) Core Mindfulness Skills

2) Emotion Regulation Skills

3) Distress Tolerance Skills

4) Interpersonal Effectiveness Skills

The Miami DBT skills group is a six-month comprehensive program. Attendance for the full six months is required in order to reap the benefits demonstrated from DBT skills groups in research and clinical settings. Members can participate in fully adherent DBT treatment at our center (skills group + individual therapy + phone coaching) or can join the group as a standalone treatment or adjunct to their external individual therapy.*

DBT therapy teaches how to manage and stabilize emotions, how to cope with difficult situations, and how to interact with others more effectively. It provides a framework for skilled and intentional living.
