Emotional Coping Skills Training for Adolescents (DBT-A) – Friday 20th and Friday 27th November. Online small group workshop via Zoom. Recording available after the event.
Enhancing emotional regulation and social interaction for young people and their carers.
Marie Wassberg and Fiona Kennedy introduce DBT-A (Dialectical Behaviour Therapy for Adolescents). You do not need to be a DBT therapist to deliver this Skills Training.
Emotional Coping Skills can be delivered in group, individually, with parents or carers and in residential settings.
DBT-A Skills Training is useful with any adolescent who has difficulty regulating emotions.
DBT-A is a strength-based approach directly targeting emotional dysregulation, lack of relationship skills and poor self-esteem.
Young people learn about themselves, their bodies, emotions, thoughts and consequences. Families and carers or staff learn the same skills and how to help the young person generalise and practise their new knowledge.
