Current Group Therapy Offerings
DBT Skills Group: This is a skills-based group for adults based on Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). DBT skills are helpful for anyone interested in coping more effectively with distressing emotions and relationship problems. People who experience frequent anxiety, anger, shame, and/or sadness would benefit from this group. This group is also helpful for people who have frequent interpersonal conflict at home and at work.
"What will I learn?"
The group focuses on four areas: mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness. Mindfulness skills help decrease anxiety, distractibility, and judgmental thinking. Distress tolerance skills improve one's capacity to cope with stressful situations without becoming overwhelmed. Emotion regulation skills help decrease up-and-down emotions. Interpersonal effectiveness skills help decrease interpersonal conflict and stress as well as improve relational satisfaction. It takes approximately 6 months to get through all of the areas once, but members are encouraged to complete all areas twice. The group is an addition to individual therapy, and you must be in individual therapy to join.
"How much does it cost?"
All of the services at the PSC are on a sliding scale based on your annual household income. DBT group sessions range from $5-$25 per session.
"How do I join?"
Call us at (502) 852-6782 and let us know you are interested in joining one of the DBT skills groups. You will complete a phone screening to determine if our clinic services are a good fir with your needs.
"When and where do DBT groups meet?"
Mondays 5:30pm-7:30pm via MS Teams (started 11/28/22); Wednesdays 4:30pm-6:30pm via MS Teams (started 3/29/23)
"Do I need an individual therapist?"
Yes. The group is very skills-focused and there is not time to talk deeply about how to apply the skills in your life. Therefore, you will still need an individual therapist. We also require that you sign a release allowing us to talk with your therapist. The goal of this is to help you get the most out of the group. If you are interested in joining a DBT group and don't currently have an individual therapist, please call us at (502) 852-6782 to discuss options.
If you are needing services sooner than our waitlist can allow or a particular service we do not offer, we can refer you to other providers in the community who may be able to assist you. Call us at (502) 852-6782 and we can give you more resources.
