DBT skills classes for parents follows the same 24-week curriculum as our standard teen/parent classes. It is intended for parents who want to learn the skills being taught to their family members in our teen/parent classes, or parents who have clinical or logistical reasons to be in a different skills class than their teen, or whose teen is in treatment elsewhere (i.e., residential, hospital-based programs, or wilderness). Enrollment is open to new participants at 6-week intervals. The cost for class is $90/person per week paid ahead in 6-week installments ($540). All parents interested in this option will need to participate in a pre-enrollment 50-minute intake appointment with the skills class instructor. The fee for this intake appointment is $200. We do not contract with insurance companies. We will provide participants with an invoice at the end of each module to submit for an out-of-network reimbursement.

Our DBT Skills classes fill up very quickly. If you interested in enrollment in an upcoming module, please submit an online inquiry right away. Our enrollment process (i.e., initial inquiry, paperwork completion, intake appointment, enrollment confirmation) can take up to 3 weeks. Please plan accordingly to provide enough time for all steps.
