Class: DBT Skills Class for Binge Eating and Bulimia
Instructor: Hilary Ferris White, LCSW
Location: Main Clinic – 345 38th Street
Time: 6:00p – 8:00p
This DBT skills class is open to individuals currently struggling with binge eating and bulimia. Over the course of 20 weeks participants will learn standard DBT skills of mindfulness, distress tolerance and emotion regulation. In addition, this class will provide motivation and commitment strategies to stop binging, as well as relapse prevention. Participants must be in weekly therapy with an individual therapist to participate in this class. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept clients who are medically unstable and require hospitalization because of electrophysiological abnormalities, electrolyte imbalances, or other potentially dangerous conditions. We are also unable to accept clients who are extremely underweight, unless medically monitored weight restoration has already safely begun and close medical supervision continues. Unlike other standard DBT classes with rolling admission, this class is a closed group where participants sign up for the full 20 weeks.
