The DBT Mindfulness & Skills Group Series is a 22-session series for adults that teaches all the core skills of Dialectical Behavior Therapy to a committed group of recovering individuals. This group may be helpful for those who struggle with their own emotional volatility or hypersensitivity in their personal or professional lives, unstable friendships, self-harm, emotionally manipulative communication patterns, reactive suicidality, overwhelming helplessness, emotional eating, codependent interpersonal style, sex or gambling or other form of process addiction, and substance abuse.

The series includes the following:

  • Required: DBT Mindfulness & Skills Group – Tuesdays 5:30 – 7pm ($75 per group)

  • Required: DBT Homework & Diary Card Review – Thursdays 5:30pm – 6:30pm ($35 per group)

  • Recommended: DBT Individual Therapy (Fee varies from $150-200 depending on the licensure level of the clinician)

  • All clients in this program receive a DBT binder with all skills, homework and diary cards.

All clients must be assessed in order to participate in this group series.

Kat Zwick runs this group, and they will be joined in the Fall of 2020 by post-doctoral associate Zo Amaro Jimenez. Kat was trained in a DBT treatment program and was supervised by a certified DBT practitioner for 3 years in Chicago, and Kat has also received intensive DBT-PTSD training directly from Behavioral Tech, Marsha Linehan’s training institution. Kat brings as much of adherent DBT as they can to an outpatient private practice, though it is modified to fit the setting.
