This group is for people interested in a short term course on regulating emotions. If you are overwhelmed by your feelings (anxiety, fear), overrun by emotions (anger, rage), or expect life not to affect your emotions (expectations that don't match your emotional experience), this is the group for you. It repeats twice or thrice a year for those who need a refresher.
DBT is a form of Cognitive Behavior Therapy originally developed by psychologist Marsha Linehan to help people who resort to self-destructive behaviors. It has been since expanded to be used widely for all kinds of conditions. It combines mindfulness with a manualized series of structured exercises that are customized for each participant. It requires weekly "homework" that is then processed with the group in the workshop. Each workshop is 2 hours long.
