Dialectical Behaviour Therapy

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) is a treatment developed by a psychologist named Marsha Linehan. DBT focuses on your goals, skills, and the future that you want to build. The treatment can help individuals who struggle with regulating intense emotions, anger, impulsivity, addiction, eating disorders, suicidal ideation, trauma, and/or borderline personality disorder.

About Us

DBT Winnipeg is proud to offer standard DBT, based on empirically supported research models. At DBT Winnipeg, all of our group leaders and individual therapists have received core clinical training from clinicians whom have worked directly with DBT's founder, Dr. Marsha Linehan. Our clinicians value adhering to the DBT model and protocols, thus offering quality treatment, and have been providing DBT in both the public and private sector for several years.

DBT Winnipeg provides standard comprehensive DBT which includes seeing an individual therapist at least twice per month, attending weekly DBT skills groups, and skills coaching 7 days a week.

Services & Fees

Intake Session

Intake sessions are for new clients wishing to engage in DBT therapy. During the initial intake session, the intake coordinator will complete a DBT program assessment, provide orientation to the treatment model, and make treatment recommendations.

 

Fees: $150/50 min. intake session.  

Individual Therapy

Individual DBT therapy involves weekly or biweekly sessions that are structured around targeting unhelpful behaviours. Individual DBT therapists must have attended DBT Core Clinical Training and must attend weekly Consultation Team Meetings. If they are not on a team, it is not DBT. 

We offer individual sessions that are collaborative and empower our clients to work on goals to improve their lives. Therapy sessions involve completing behavioural chain analyses, reviewing diary card tracking, and building on new skills to change behavioural patterns. 

 

Fees range from $150-$165/50 minute session.

DBT Skills Group

Skills groups are held weekly in eight-week blocks. Each eight-week block will cover the Mindfulness module and one of the other three modules, which include Distress Tolerance, Emotion Regulation, and Interpersonal Effectiveness. Clients will need to commit to attendance for a full round of skills program to participate. Completing three consecutive eight-week blocks is the equivalent to a 24-week comprehensive DBT skills training program. In some cases, clients may choose to partake in a second round of skills group, completing a year of treatment.

Clients must attend individual therapy with a therapist affiliated with our program at least twice per month while attending the DBT skills group to help them to apply the skills they are learning in group.

 

Group fees: $800/8-week skills group.

Skills Coaching

DBT Skills Coaching is an important element of the treatment. Clients must have access to skills coaching to work on generalizing the skills they are learning in group and individual therapy. 

 

At DBT Winnipeg, we have a skills coaching email provided to clients who are actively attending DBT Skills Groups. Clients can email for coaching help any time of the week to learn to apply the skills.

 

Fees: Included in cost of Skills Training Group.
