DBT- Linehan Board of Certification, Certified Program™


What happens in skills group?

Awake DBT is a psycho-educational and experiential group. Each group begins with a mindfulness exercise. We debrief of how each participant experienced the practice for that day. We segue to homework review, in which each shares for 5-6 minutes how they practiced the skills and what questions remain about the skill. We then take a short break. The second hour is dedicated to teaching new skills. We finish with an explanation of what the practice will be for the coming week .

“Since finishing Awake DBT, life has gotten more stressful for me, but I have the tools and confidence in myself to get through them and am exponentially happier for it.”
