DBT Classes (Recently Added)

Pre-Teen Skills Class

Wednesdays, 5:00 – 6:00 p.m. (and other Weekdays by arrangement)

Designed for pre-teen boys and girls with emotional dysregulation or attentional difficulties, this Pre-Teen Skills Class is highly structured and based on DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), modified to meet the developmental needs of younger people.

Each class participant needs an Initial Intake Appointment with Dr. Kirsten Moore so that we may determine whether the class fits your needs.

Topics include: 

*Mindfulness: Being aware and paying attention

*Emotion Regulation: Understanding your emotions and how to change them

*Interpersonal Effectiveness: How to ask for what you want or need and how to say “No” while maintaining relationships and self-respect

and

*Distress Tolerance: How to handle extreme emotions and overthinking

Each participant needs to have an individual therapist (at or outside of Balance & Potential Inc).

Dr. Moore communicates to the individual therapists which skills are taught each week.
