Change for your mind
We are pleased to announce that Inner Wellth is now offering Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), which helps people who feel powerful emotions and feel like their lives are misunderstood and out-of-balance, often because of problematic interactions.
It focuses on Dialectics, the philosophy of finding the middle path between two extremes. It is also a therapy that values acceptance of the individual, and recognizes the value in change, without invalidating the necessity of either position.
This is a comprehensive therapy and can be delivered in the standard model, which is intensive (at least 1 therapy session and 1 skills training group per week), or modified as necessary depending on the client's needs.
The Skills Training groups can be taken stand-alone, but do require a time commitment to ensure clients are learning enough skills to have an impact. Individual therapy is strongly encouraged to accompany the skills training, because the skills training group is not a therapy group. It's a learning environment.
Formalized and standard model DBT offers 24-hour skills coaching, which is another advantage to doing DBT with a DBT-practicing individual therapist.
Several skills training groups are being offered. If you would like to get involved in our DBT program, please contact Dr. Shipon, our clinical director.
