Arts-Based Dialectical Behavior Therapy
We're really excited about our Arts-Based DBT program. Dialectical Behavior Therapy is an evidence-based therapy proven effective at helping individuals building a life worth living. This program includes traditional Dialectical Behavioral Therapy Skills Groups designed to teach adults Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Interpersonal Effectiveness, and Emotional Regulation Skills that they have not learned, or do not know how to apply to their daily lives.
People who have participated in our DBT skills groups in the past have demonstrated creativity that has largely been unexpressed. This tends to cause a sense of lost identity and a restlessness of the mind. We took this observation and applied it to our Arts-Based DBT program. Integrating art into this program enhances skills retention.
A lot of thought and attention has been put into this program to deliver the quality necessary to gain skills that will last a lifetime. This program is for creative, sensitive people who struggle with living life on life's terms.
*****We are empathetic to those who find themselves unable to access quality programs due to income restrictions. We are able to offer financial arrangements to make this affordable to those who qualify.
