The program lasts approximately 12-14 months and includes the following components:
Individual DBT Psychotherapy: Through a combination of dialectical, validation, and problem-solving strategies, individual therapy helps clients to reduce maladaptive, mood-dependent behaviors and replace them with more skillful responses.
DBT Skills Training: A skills training group combines lecture, discussion, and practice exercises to develop and refine skills in non-judgmental, present moment awareness and acceptance, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, interpersonal effectiveness, and problem-solving.

Couples Therapy That teaches DBT Skills
San Jose DBT offers DBT skills training for couples in San Jose in private couple’s sessions. In these sessions, we teach coach couples in DBT skills and teach an overall relationship strategy to help couples be skillful and effective and live healthier lives.
San Jose Couples Counseling clients often report that Social Media has redefined communication for today’s couples. More than ever, partners are finding it challenging to feel “satisfied” about their communication with their partners and families.
San Jose DBT Teaches DBT Skills to help couples build mastery in their communication and problem solving with their partner. We frequently enroll one or both partners in one of our DBT Skills classes while they attend private couples counseling sessions.
When couples seek couples counseling, they will often express a desire for improved communication but what they actually want is to feel connected and on the same page as their partner to feel loved.
DBT Skills for Parents
Helping Parents and Families with DBT Skills Coaching is something we take seriously here at San Jose DBT. We work virtually through phone or secure virtual platforms to provide Parents and other adult family members with DBT Skills coaching to help them be as effective and skillful as possible in interacting with their loved ones. This kind of Skills Coaching is NOT psychotherapy but instead involves teaching skills one-on-one and then coaching the client to improve motivation and practice skills.
