MULTI-FAMILY DBT PROGRAM

Adolescent clients ages 13-17. 

Skills training with adolescent clients and parents.

In the Multi-Family DBT Program, adolescent clients receive comprehensive DBT treatment, including all four components of full fidelity Dialectical Behavior Therapy.  This means that adolescent clients attend weekly individual sessions with their DBT primary clinician, have access to phone coaching services for skill use outside of therapy sessions and treatment is overseen by the CDBTA consultation team. 


In addition to standard DBT treatment, adolescent clients attend a highly structured weekly skills-oriented group for teens and their caregivers that takes place once a week for two hours. This skills group is based on the curriculum of Alec Miller and Jill Rathus and combines Marsha Linehan’s Skills Training Manual, with an additional module, Walking the Middle Path, which focuses on parent-teen dilemmas. 

While attending skills group both the client and their caregiver are provided with phone coaching services by the DBT primary clinician and a secondary member of the CDBTA consultation team, to better assist the family in generalizing skills use in all settings. 


After completing Multi-Family Skills Group, it may be determined that additional treatment is needed (based on needs, trauma history, and symptoms); if this is the case, the adolescent may continue to engage in individual DBT sessions along with joining the adolescent skills group described below. Class size is limited to approximately 6 people in various configurations of family. In order to achieve balance in group and allow our young people to feel supported rather than outnumbered, we prefer to allow one parent or caregiver to attend at a time.

An initial 90-minute assessment is required to join this program.
