Adolescents Invited to Step into Spring with Training in Eight New Skills
This spring, ITA is proud to offer a one-of-a-kind skills training art therapy group that will cater to teens who endure anxiety, quick changes in mood, and strong emotional states.
What are CBT and DBT Skills? Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) skills use problem-solving techniques to help a person modify their distressing thoughts or behaviors. Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a form of CBT that focuses on the idea that self-acceptance and self-change can happen at the same time. This skills training group will use visual art creation to help participants apply specific CBT and DBT skills to their personal experiences, with an end goal of fostering psychological growth.
The CBT/DBT Skills Training Art Therapy Group begins this spring on May 12th and will run every Saturday for one hour from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. The procession of this group will maintain an ongoing, open-entry structure – participants may join at any time during the rotation. The package includes 8 skills in 8 weeks for the discounted price of $240. An intake process is required for admittance.
