The Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) Group

Brain injury often comes with changes in emotions and behaviour. The DBT group is designed for people who often regret what they say or do when they are feeling upset and want to do something about it. Participants will learn how to get a clearer picture of how they are feeling and develop skills they can use to manage strong emotions and difficult situations. The curriculum is based on The Skills System, a modified version of Dialectical Behaviour Therapy that is designed for people who are living with the effects of acquired brain injury. Skills include mindfulness meditation, recognizing which types of thinking and behaviour are likely to help to achieve goals, and what to do to keep on track. Emphasis will be given to practicing skills in a group setting and exploring how skills can be applied to situations that are important in life.
