Dialectical Behavior Therapy

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an evidence-based therapy that includes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and mindfulness.

DBT has proven effective in helping individuals develop coping skills, challenge negative thinking, and reduce high-risk behaviors such as self-harm and suicidal ideation. DBT is also validating and can be empowering!

The Teen DBT Group is part of the mental health support for teenagers that Eastside Center for Family provides.

Teen DBT Group

At Eastside Center for Family, we offer a teen DBT group, led by Janelle Natividad, LMCHA, SUDPT.

During the summer, the teen DBT group meets once a week for 2, for 6 weeks. The group runs longer during the school year.

What your teen can accomplish in the Teen DBT Group

Teenagers can benefit from DBT therapy with a therapist and from the Teen DBT Group.

Everyone faces unique challenges, hardships, and heartaches. Using DBT allows teens to learn ways to deal with their personal challenges and work towards self-improvement.
