Group Therapy

DBT SKills Group

Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) is a type of therapy originally developed by Marsha Linehan. DBT is often associated with the treatment of borderline personality disorder. It is particularly useful for young people experiencing suicidal thoughts, self-harm, drug and alcohol misuse, labile emotions and impulsive behaviours. However, DBT skills are useful for all young people in managing difficult emotions and in managing challenging interpersonal relationships.

Farren Psychology offers an 8-week DBT skills group covering the following topics:

– Emotional Regulation

– Distress Tolerance

– Interpersonal Effectiveness

– Walking the Middle Path

Our DBT skills groups run in line with the QLD school terms on a Saturday morning.
