PRE-TREATMENT

Getting Started with Comprehensive DBT

RATES: Credentials

90 minute session

ASSESSMENT & ORIENTATION
$240

This session allows for a better understanding of past experiences while becoming familiar with current therapeutic needs, goals, and concerns. During this session, client and therapist work together to clarify therapeutic targets while reviewing the CDBTA program handbook to create the necessary building blocks for an evidence-based treatment plan. This appointment is necessary to begin the six week pre-treatment process (4-6 sessions) for joining either our Adolescent or Adult DBT Program.

60 minute session

PRETREATMENT SESSION
$160

The pre-treatment stage of DBT last approximately 4-6 weeks and is where potential clients and therapists decide whether DBT will be an effective treatment. This is a time where potential clients learn about the program and are able to explore if DBT is right for them. We take the commitment to our program very seriously and want to ensure that potential clients fully understand the agreements being made, before moving forward. Once potential clients fully commit to treatment, they are considered a program client at CDBTA and can move forward into the next stage of treatment.

*Please note that anyone in pre-treatment is not considered a client just yet. You are encouraged, therefore, to remain in whatever current treatment you are in until pre-treatment is complete.  At that time, we ask that you terminate any conflicting treatments in order to maximize the benefits of DBT.*

COMPREHENSIVE DBT TREATMENT

Program Components

RATES: Credentials

60 minute session

INDIVIDUAL THERAPY SESSION
$160

Individual component of treatment in which therapist and client discuss issues that come up during the week, recorded on diary cards and follow a treatment target hierarchy. Self-injurious and suicidal behaviors take first priority, followed by therapy interfering behaviors. Then there are quality of life issues and finally working towards improving one's life generally. During the individual therapy, the therapist and patient work towards improving skill use. Often, skills group is discussed and obstacles to acting skillfully are addressed. These sessions are combined with between session phone coaching to generalize skill use in day to day settings.

Reduced individual session rates available for clients whose treatment needs align with DBT Fellows ($115) or DBT Interns ($45), which is determined during the pre-treatment process.

Monthly

DBT PHONE COACHING
$185

DBT uses phone coaching, an in-vivo technique, to provide in-the-moment support. The goal is to coach clients on how to use their DBT skills to effectively cope with difficult situations that arise in everyday life. Clients can call their individual therapist between sessions to receive coaching at the times when they need help the most.

120 minute group session

DBT SKILLS GROUP
$120

Our groups are psycho-educational in format, operating more like a class than a typical therapy group. Our adult skills groups contain four skills modules - mindfulness, distress tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness and emotion regulation.  For clients with complex, multi-diagnostic, difficult to treat concerns, we recommend completing this group twice (48 sessions).

90 minute group session

DBT ADOLESCENT
SKILLS GROUP
$120

Our groups are psycho-educational in format, operating more like a class than a typical therapy group. Our adolescent skills groups contain four skills modules - mindfulness, distress tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness and emotion regulation. Our adolescent program contains an additional module, walking the middle path, attended by both the adolescent client and one caregiver.

120 minute group session

DBT MULTIFAMILY
SKILLS GROUP
$190

A highly structured 8 session skills-oriented group for teens and their caregivers that takes place once a week for two hours. Designed to teach the DBT skills of walking the middle path, which focuses on parent-teen dilemmas. This group has a class-like format with handouts, take-home exercises, and experiential activities, but there is no expectation that group members share information that is uncomfortable. The combination of this 8 session parent-adolescent group with the 20 adolescent only group sessions is the evidence-based, gold standard of treatment for individuals suffering from emotion dysregulation, identity confusion, interpersonal difficulties, impulsivity, risky behaviors, and teen-parent conflict. Research has shown that caregivers’ involvement makes treatment more effective because caregivers learn to serve as coaches for their children and benefit from learning the skills themselves. Mastery of these skills often requires repetition of the cycle. For this reason, families have the opportunity to continue skills training at the conclusion of the full 28 session cycle and repeat the five skills training modules.

DBT- PE

For those clients in DBT that have identified PTSD as a problem that is causing distress and impairment, treatment of PTSD may be a relevant therapy goal using prolonged exposure treatment either during or following comprehensive DBT treatment.

RATES: Credentials

90 minute session

DBT-PE ORIENTATION &
TREATMENT PLANNING
$240

Prolonged Exposure (PE) Therapy, originally developed by Edna Foa, Ph.D., and endorsed by both the American Psychiatric Association and the Department of Veterans Affairs, is a form of psychotherapy for post-traumatic stress disorder  (PTSD) . After a traumatic event, some individuals experience unwanted thoughts, disturbing nightmares, feelings of hopelessness, depression, and hypervigilance for an extended period of time. The goal of PE is to gradually help clients reengage with life, especially with desired or necessary activities/places that have been being avoided. Sessions begin at 90 minutes and build to 120 minutes as exposure work is incorporated. This is a weekly treatment lasting approximately three months.

120 minute session

DBT_PE INDIVIDUAL THERAPY
$275

Upon completion of the orientation and treatment planning process, exposure therapy is incorporated into individual sessions, lengthening sessions to accommodate both DBT and PE treatment strategies during each session.

RATES: Credentials

30 minute session

CONSULTATION
$60

Comfort and trust are essential components for successful treatment outcomes. This brief session allows potential clients a chance to meet for a virtual appointment to discuss our Comprehensive DBT program and available treatment options. Although this consultation is optional for joining our Comprehensive DBT program it is a necessary first step for those seeking DBT-informed treatment- either individual or group sessions.

50 minute individual session

DBT-INFORMED SESSION
$115 (FELLOW RATE)
$30 (INTERN RATE)

We understand that although many people could benefit from components of DBT, not all client treatment needs require comprehensive DBT. With this approach, only the methods that are most needed are used. DBT-informed treatment does not include all five of the components of comprehensive DBT (improving motivation, enhancing capabilities, ensuring generalization, enhancing environment and maintaining the skills and motivation of treatment providers). While DBT-informed treatment can be very helpful for some clients, it is important to recognize that research shows that Comprehensive DBT is the most effective, especially for clients who suffer from more severe symptoms.

Reduced individual session rates available for clients whose treatment needs align with DBT Interns ($30), which is determined during the consultation.

CLIENTS SEEKING DBT INFORMED TREATMENT ARE ASKED TO BOOK A CONSULTATION APPOINTMENT TO DISCUSS IF THIS PATH ALIGNS WITH THEIR TREATMENT NEEDS AND GOALS.

90 minute group session

DBT-INFORMED ADULT
SKILLS GROUP
$45

We understand that although many people could benefit from components of DBT not all client treatment needs require comprehensive DBT. This group is for individuals whose treatment needs do not require comprehensive DBT (as determined during their consultation) yet they could still benefit from DBT Skills acquisition. We also offer this group for graduates of our program to take a refresher module.

Research supports the effectiveness of partial implementation of DBT, with most of the research showing support for implementation of the skills-group-only approach or the skills group combined with one or two other modes of treatment.​

While DBT-informed treatment can be very helpful for some clients, it is important to recognize that research shows that Comprehensive DBT is the most effective, especially for clients who suffer from more severe symptoms. For this reason, rule-our criteria apply when joining this group.

CLIENTS SEEKING DBT INFORMED TREATMENT ARE ASKED TO BOOK A CONSULTATION APPOINTMENT TO DISCUSS IF THIS PATH ALIGNS WITH THEIR TREATMENT NEEDS AND GOALS.

60 minute session

HOMEWORK SESSION
$30

Provide assistance with both comprehension and completion of skills group homework to enhance effectiveness of treatment.

50 minute session

DBT FAMILY
SUPPORT SESSION
$75

We offer one-on-one sessions for the loved one’s of clients in our Comprehensive DBT program. In these individual sessions, we offer supportive counseling while teaching DBT skills. This is so you can learn what your loved one is learning (allowing you to support their treatment), and so you can learn more effective ways of interacting with them. We understand the toll emotion dysregulation can take, and we teach you new ways of responding that will reduce your own distress.
