Adolescent DBT Groups

A group Adolescent DBT workshop will be running at The Couch (Practice of Psychology and Psychiatry) over 12 consecutive weeks, with weekly 2 hour sessions. This outpatient group will be facilitated by Psychologist Melina Georgiou.

The workshop will focus on the four main modules of DBT: mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotional regulation and interpersonal effectiveness.

Participating teens will experience and learn:

  • Greater impulse control
  • Adapt to feeling emotions less intensely
  • Distress tolerance
  • Breaking negative behavioural patterns
  • Reducing the potential for self-destructive behaviour
  • Anxiety and stress management
  • Building self-esteem
  • Reducing reckless behaviour
  • Improved decision-making skills
  • Interpersonal effectiveness (personal relationship and social skills)
  • Self-acceptance and awareness
  • Effective communication with self and others

For our DBT group sessions, the total cost is R16 000. This amount includes an intake session along with 12 weekly sessions. A deposit is usually required after the intake session occurs and DBT group sessions are deemed a good fit. This deposit amounts to R4 000 (intake + first 2 sessions). The follow-ups will thereafter be R1 200 per session. Kindly note intakes cost R1 600. You will be able to claim a portion back from your medical aid.
