Who Could Benefit?
The Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) Graduate Group is geared towards participants who have successfully completed at least one full round of a DBT skills group (minimum 6 months), i.e., mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation and interpersonal effectiveness, and are committed to maintaining their gains, building upon the skills they’ve learned and mastering advanced DBT skills.
This group is ideal for individuals who have a good basis in emotional regulation and want to progress beyond the foundational DBT skills and strengthen their resources. This group is not suitable for participants actively struggling with high-risk behaviours including suicidal or self-harm behaviour, frequent use of crisis services, severe addictions or significant eating disordered behaviour. We encourage such participants to complete, or repeat, the DBT Skills Training Group prior to considering the DBT Graduate Group.
