This 16-week DBT Advanced skills class is intended for clients who have completed at least one 24-week cycle of standard DBT skills classes at Clearwater. Interested participants who have taken DBT skills classes elsewhere will be considered on a case-by-case basis. The class will delve deeper into prioritization and flexible application of DBT skills to real-life situations through group dialogue and role- play. We will explore many of the more complex concepts in DBT, such as radical acceptance, compassion, non-judgment, emotional exposure and tolerance, dialectical philosophy and how to more consistently apply these concepts in our daily lives. This class will include a peer-led mindfulness component.
