Friends and Family DBT Class is a 10 week program that meets once a week on Tuesday evenings from 6 pm-7:30 pm. It is specifically designed to meet the needs of family members (spouses, partners, adult children, parents, siblings and friends) who have a relative or loved one who has been diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) or symptoms of the disorder. The group educates family members about Borderline Personality Disorder and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), teaches coping skills based on DBT, identifies ways to improve family communication, and helps family members to reinforce behaviors their loved one is learning in DBT. The group teaches mindfulness, validation, radical acceptance and effective family communication.
This class is self-pay only. The charge is $20 per class, or $150 for the full 10-week session if paid in full at the start.
The Friends and Family DBT class is currently accepting new members. If you are interested in attending this class, contact MCP at 651-644-4100.
