Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) for Teens
Our Adolescent DBT Program provides comprehensive therapy and skills that help teenagers ages 14 to 18 decrease symptoms, maintain safety, and improve quality of life. Our supportive yet challenging program motivates clients to practice skills in and out of therapy sessions. Adolescents learn skills such as mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, interpersonal effectiveness, and life balance.
The comprehensive Adolescent DBT program meets twice weekly on Mondays and Thursdays from 4:30pm–6:15pm, with a parent education and support component that meets monthly. Our programs are designed to work closely with other providers to ensure our clients receive the highest level of comprehensive mental health services to meet their individual needs.
Some 18 year old clients may be eligible for an adult DBT program depending on assessed developmental level and life circumstances. Length of treatment is variable based on medical necessity and goal attainment. Call us today at 952-835-2002 to schedule an intake appointment.
If your child is 14, the intake assessment will determine which group is the best fit for them.
