Effective Living Skills

Fridays 10:15 – 11:45 a.m.
led by Dani Gonzales

The Effective Living Group is a group for students who feel that it is difficult to manage intense emotions. It is meant to teach a variety of skills adapted from Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to assist individuals who struggle with emotional and interpersonal issues. Learning modules include Regulating Emotions, Tolerating Distress, Increasing Mindfulness, and Improving Relationships. Each week the group will review old material, teach new material, and assign practice exercises. Group members will interact with each other and help each other learn and grow during this process.
