DBT Skills Classes for Adolescents in New York City
How can DBT skills help your adolescent?
Does your teenager have trouble interacting with others?
Does your adolescent love friends one minute and hate them the next?
Is everything always a “drama”?
Does your teen say that things HAVE to be a certain way or “else”?
Does your adolescent complain of feeling numb or empty?
Does your teenager have strong overwhelming or confusing emotions?
Is your adolescent too impulsive?
Although some of these behaviors are normal part of adolescence, when they get in the way of your teenager’s school work, social life, and development, DBT skills classes can help.Specifically, classes can help teens tolerate strong emotions without taking them out on others, ask for what they want/need in an appropriate fashion, describe their emotions in words without acting on them,cope with difficult situations, and maintain self-respect.DBT skills classes can also help teens who engage in unhealthy behaviors because they have trouble dealing with their emotions, such as binging, purging, and cutting.
