What is DBT?

  • DBT stands for Dialectical Behavior Therapy. This treatment is effective for those who have difficulty controlling their emotions and behaviors. DBT aims to build up skillful behaviors and help navigate healthy relationships in one’s environment (family, school, peers). 

What is this group?

  • This group is designed for high school girls who may be struggling with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, and controlling their emotions. This group focuses on one specific topic each week for an hour. Examples of DBT topics include: taking a hold of your mind, crisis survival skills, taking charge of emotions, maintaining self-respect, and more. As the group progresses each week, the girls will be able to build coping skills while in a safe and fun environment as well as building confidence. In addition to building skills, this group is also appropriate for girls needing a place to experience (and practice) connecting with their peers. 

How do I join?

  • Prior to participating in the group, the participant and their guardian is required to engage in an intake session with Kate Kindle in order to gain appropriate information and to assure they are going to be a good fit for the group.  Someone about to enter high school or just finishing with high school could still be a good fit, so please inquire further if the age range or goodness of fit is a question. The group starts February 27th and will be ongoing, so participants may join anytime!

What is this group? 

  • STRONG Social Skills Group is aiming for just that: building strong social skills! STRONG also stands for social, teamwork, rewarding, organization, new, and growth.  These are all things we hope to help our participants experience and learn about. The group provides a safe place to have fun and explore different challenges and identify ways to revise their thoughts and related behaviors in different settings. The kids will learn social skills relating to making friends, keeping friends, as well as how to embrace their uniqueness and being wary of social pitfalls. 

Who is it for? 

  • This group is geared for 8 to 11 year olds. Prior to participating in the group, the guardian of the participant is required to engage in an intake session with Kate in order to gain necessary intake information and to assure they are going to be a good fit for the group. If the participant in question is 7 or 12 please still inquire! The goodness of fit is more important than the age and there are lots of factors that make a fit appropriate. The group starts February 27th and will be ongoing, so participants may join anytime!
