Day Kimball Healthcare Hosts Adolescent Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) Group

January 30, 2017
Day Kimball Healthcare’s (DKH) Outpatient Behavioral Health program is hosting a Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) Skills Group for boys and girls ages 13-17 in need of developing specific skills to reduce intense emotions and confusion in their lives so that they can feel happier, live healthier, and be more successful.

The sixteen week group is skills-focused and is an evidence-based clinical intervention for adolescents who struggle with extreme emotional reactivity, unstable self-concept and relationships, mood disorder, and self-injurious behaviors.

By learning and practicing the skills taught in the group, participants will learn to develop greater self-awareness and genuine self-esteem, interact more effectively with others and be able to form healthier relationships, tolerate and regulate frustration and other distressing feelings, and break the self-destructive cycle of depression, anxiety, and extreme emotional reactivity.

The group meets for weekly after school sessions from 3:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. at the Community Services Center on the Day Kimball Hospital Campus, 320 Pomfret Street, Putnam. Snacks are provided. Registration is required. For more information and to register, contact the DKH Behavioral Health Center at (860) 928-6541 ext. 2535.
