Teen DBT Program

Does your teen struggle to manage their emotions?

Do you worry about your teen’s ability to cope with stressful situations?

Does your family live on-edge about doing or saying the wrong thing to your teen?

Teens today are under a great deal of stress and face a number of personal, social, and academic challenges they may not know how to handle. For some teens, this leads to things like constant fighting at home, reckless behavior, intense mood swings, debilitating anxiety, major depression, and even self-harm or suicidal thoughts. Let the skilled therapists at Village Counseling and Wellness help your teen develop the emotional intelligence necessary to lead a happy and healthy life.

We have developed our Teen DBT Program to help your teen learn how to get through life’s challenges. Our Teen DBT program is tailored to address many issues adolescents may be struggling with on a daily basis. We help your teen:

  • Develop tools to stop suicidal ideation and thoughts of self-harm

  • Improve their social skills

  • Learn how to manage stress

  • Increase their distress tolerance

  • Develop strong communication skills

  • Decrease their attachment to perfectionism

  • Manage moderate to severe anxiety and depression

  • Learn how to navigate friendships and relationships

  • Build the skills needed to create safety and stability in life

At Village Counseling and Wellness, we believe in working with the entire family when we work with teens. As a client in our Teen DBT Program, your child will attend treatment services at least 2 times per week, depending on the schedule of their individual plan. The core of your teen’s treatment will include a weekly individual therapy and weekly multi-family skills training group. We request that you and your child commit to a minimum of 6 months of treatment. Both our own experience and empirical research shows that a year in treatment yields the most optimal results.

Our Teen DBT Program includes:

  • Weekly Individual therapy

  • Weekly Multi-Family Skills training group

  • Ongoing Skills Coaching (between therapy sessions)

We have structured our Teen DBT Program using an evidenced-based treatment approach. Because of its nature, we do not customize or change the basic program. However, we are able to work with families to offer additional treatment services as enhancements to the Teen DBT Program. These additional services can include any of the following:

  • Family Therapy Sessions

  • Medication Evaluation and Medication Management

  • Psychological Evaluation

  • Weekly Neurofeedback

  • Outcome Assessments

  • Parent Coaching

  • DBT Skills Tutoring
