Short-term DBT Skills Groups

After School Virtual DBT Groups

Short Term DBT Groups


These short-term groups will help kids (6-15years) to understand emotions and learn skills for emotional regulation, distress tolerance, mindfulness, and interpersonal interactions.

Groups meet Tuesdays and Thursdays

Tuesday: 3:30 to 4:30 6–9-year-olds In-person

Tuesday: 4:45 to 5:45 10-15-year-olds In-person

Thursday: 3:30 to 4:30 Virtual group 10-15

For more information and to see if these groups are appropriate for your child complete the form below. 

In-Person groups meet at Advocare Fairmount Pediatrics 2000 Hamilton St, Philadelphia, PA 19130.  DO NOT CALL THE OFFICE!

If your child is actively suicidal, has had several inpatient hospitalizations, or is actively self-injuring, these groups will not be appropriate. Your child will need a more intense program such as the comprehensive DBT program. Contact me for more information.
