DBT Skills Intensive Outpatient Program
For males and females ages 13-17

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a wide-ranging, evidence-based, cognitive behavioral treatment that has been shown to be a highly effective model for treating an array of disorders and problems. 

DBT is based on the theory that emotionally sensitive individuals tend to experience negative feelings more often, making it difficult for them to learn appropriate ways to regulate their emotions; this increases their tendency to engage in maladaptive behaviors to manage those negative feelings.  The goals of DBT skills training are to improve emotion regulation, learn mindfulness, strengthen distress tolerance, and increase interpersonal effectiveness.

Who:   Males and females ages 13-17

What:   The DBT Skills IOP program gives adolescents the tools they need to have successful relationships and boundaries. DBT is a highly interactive skills-based group program. It's not a program where you just sit. 

When:   Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, 4:30-7:00 pm

Where: Doorways, 1825 E. Northern Ave, Suite 200, Phoenix, Arizona 85020

How: For more information about IOP, contact our IOP coordinator at
602-997-2880 or IOP@doorwaysarizona.com.
