WHAT WE OFFER
Individual DBT therapy involves weekly or biweekly hour-long therapy sessions that are structured around targeting behaviours that are getting in the way of making your life worth living. 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: $150/50 Minute Session
Skills training 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 eight-week block to participate. Completing three consecutive eight-week blocks is the equivalent to a 24-week comprehensive DBT skills training program. Clients must attend individual therapy with a therapist at our clinic or elsewhere at least twice per month while attending the DBT Skills Training Group to help them to apply the skills they are learning in group.
Fees: $95/2-hour Skills Group
$760/8-week Skills Training Block
*Cost includes group skills manual
DBT Skills Coaching is an important element of the treatment. Clients must have access to skills coaching 24/7 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. They can email for coaching help any time of day or night.
Fees: Included in cost of Skills Training Group
