Skills group for women in recovery

The  Wilton treatment center is offering a dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) informed skills group for women in the community who have suffered traumatic experiences. Weekly 90-minute sessions are designed to strengthen each group member’s recovery by putting emotion regulation and stress management techniques into practice.

A form of cognitive behavioral therapy, DBT encourages individuals to find emotional balance by reversing negative thought patterns and recognizing their strengths. The skills group will offer an in-depth look at distress tolerance and mindfulness techniques that encourage clients to accept the past and prioritize the present.
