Men's DBT & Mindfulness

DBT and Mindfulness

Are you struggling in your relationships at work / home and need help with anger and asking for what you want?  Dialectical Behavioral Therapy can help with this.  Most DBT groups are primarily women, and men often find that they don’t feel comfortable and that they don’t often relate to the experiences discussed.   In this all men’s group you will be able to find others that can relate to your experiences, allowing a greater level of vulnerability leading to greater progress.

This 20-session didactic and experiential group meets for 1.5 hrs each session.  Group sessions will be led by a licensed therapist with extensive training in DBT, and structured around building on successes and learning from struggles  Each week will be spent reviewing what has worked when   practicing previous skills and learning new ones.  In this men’s only group you will build a sense of connection and learn you aren’t alone in your frustrations.

Benefits of Group Therapy

Groups can act as a support network and a sounding board. Other members of the group often help you come up with specific ideas for improving a difficult situation or life challenge and hold you accountable along the way. Group therapy can help you put your problems in perspective as you listen to other group members’ challenges and struggles while providing support and feedback.

People are often surprised about how beneficial and rewarding the group experience can be.  Opening up to a group of strangers can sound intimidating at first, but the bonds you build in this group, as well as the differing perspectives, will help you navigate these waters with a sense of peace and calm.
