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.
