Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Skills Group

DBT is an empirically supported treatment aimed at improving problematic patterns in emotion regulation, impulse control, interpersonal relationships, and self-image. DBT Skills Group offers skills training in four core areas, including mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness. These skills are aimed at helping individuals address existing behavioral, emotional, and interpersonal problems and begin living a life worth living.

AUPSC's DBT Skills Group meets weekly on Wednesday evenings from 5pm–7pm and runs for 15 weeks. The cost of each 2-hour session is $10 and the cost of the initial group intake appointment is $35. Group members may join on a rolling basis every four weeks until the group is full. Group members must be at least 18-years old and must have an individual therapist (at AUPSC or elsewhere). If you are interested in DBT Skills Group but do not have an individual therapist, you may contact AUPSC to learn more about our individual therapy services or obtain a referral list.

DBT Skills Group is currently accepting new clients. Please contact the clinic at 334-844-4889 to be placed on our waitlist or to learn more about our services.
